‘Every brush-stroke of his beautifully-conceived illustrations is a tribute to what is going on in the story. There are grand double-page panoramic spreads at the start of each chapter, there are full-page plates, and there are a host of vignettes in the text which perfectly catch the atmosphere of the story as it progresses. And it is the whole story too.’

This magnificent edition was published to commemorate the centenary of the first publication of this spellbinding story, so that fans of all ages can relive this heart-warming tale of friendship.
