This book is worth buying for the beautiful illustrations alone, but the story and writing equally beautiful. It's one of the real treasures of our bookshelf. We've been reading it for years, and my now three-year-old has never gotten tired of hearing it, and I've never gotten tired of reading it to her. One of my favorite things about it is that without being preachy or even having a single clear moral, it's the kind of book that makes you feel good and makes you want to be a good person.
