  1. Ah...I'm reading Tom's Midnight Garden to my eight year old now.. it's beautiful book. we bought an old copy for $2 that's falling apart. good to know it's been re-released.

    1. Hi Liz, hope your 8 year old loves it as much as we do. I'm not sure it's been re-released. I got a copy from the library and re-read it.
