I enjoyed participating in the #LWReadalong! This was a book I always meant to reread since I read an abridged copy back in elementary school. It's a little funny that I think I had an abridged interpretation of it as well. Reading this as an adult, I understood both more and less of the story and the characters telling it. Similarly, the telling can feel both dated and timeless. No matter your views, this sweet little book is worth reading.
