An international edition is a version of a book that has been published for distribution outside the U.S. Most international editions have different ISBNs than the U.S. edition. They often have different covers, usually contain the same content, and sometimes are printed on lower-quality paper. Alibris allows the sale of international editions, except for those that are not authorised by the publisher or author for importation into, or sale in, the U.S. and those that may not otherwise lawfully be imported into, or sold in, the U.S., Canada, or Australia.

I love all Roald Dahl, and this one is at the top of the list, along with The Witches, Matilda, and the BFG. It's so freely imagined, so spirited, so clever. A great read aloud for parents and children to enjoy together. Teachers: this is a great read aloud for the classroom as well.
