libbydaddy5 Stars Out Of 5Sugar Creek Gang 6 packOctober 3, 2014libbydaddyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wonderful to be brought back to these tales. Updated and with bias seemingly removed, they are sound doctrinally and good for young boys to read for entertainment. They are NOT a replacement for sound parental teaching of our Lords Words and Instructions.

have passed the test of time,
delighting young readers for more than fifty years,
By: Paul Hutchens
and the whole 'Author Bio'.
Not a thing was said, and I read it all carefully twice, about the series being 'updated for today's readers'. Imagine my disappointment, then, when we opened the package and found that splashed all over the back.
When one buys a series one read as a children, specifically for one's own children and grand children, one wishes to know if they are actually the same books!!
