I don't think any filmed version has come close to the greatness of this book. In fact, I've wondered why the films weren't truer to the book, which could be filmed practically excatly as written, it is so exultantly cinematic. I've read it more than ten times since I was a child, and it holds new wonder for me each time. It's been an influence in my own writings more than I'd guessed. By the way, the edition with illustrations by Ethel Franklin Bettes is by far the best -- they are wonderfully evocative paintings, particularly the one of Sarah looking out at the birds. It really is my very favorite book. The movies -- bah!
