Can remember it to this day!
Another of one of my (as well as my brother's) all time favorite books as a child. My mother still hangs on to it. I remember an assignment in my high school drama class requiring us to read a children's story. I brought this book from home and my teacher and student teacher became quite excited. I didn't quite comprehend their excitement. I guess I am one of those rare people that haven't read much Huxley...er, I guess this my only Huxley.
As much as I enjoyed the story I don't know how parents in our current "sensitive" and "politically correct" society would accept it. My niece loved it (but she likes bugs and "gross" things). The illustrations were phenomenal as well and I can recall them without any difficulty.
