I grew up reading the versions of these books with the Brett Helquist illustrations, so naturally for nostalgia I like those ones better ... don’t @ me
Update: As I suspected, I liked this more upon rewatch. The element of mystery was gone because I knew what was gonna happen very well because I had just watched this for the first time the day before. I still enjoyed the story even when I knew what was gonna happen and I think the pacing seemed much better the second time around. I felt that the movie went by much quicker the second time around so that’s why I moved my rating up a point.
