Some Nice Illustrations!
Not sure what another reviewer downloaded, but just got this and it's definitley as described, with illustrations by Frank Godwin and some notes. These aren't the watered down, kid-firendly versions many may remember, so you may want to read them first if you plan on reading them to the young ones.
This version does have illustrations, but they are very few.
No illustrations despite description.
