I've had this book for more than fifteen years in my bookcase now; I bought this when I was a child, for English reading program at my school back then. However, sometimes I'd reread it again if I wanted some classic light reading. As an adult, reading the book makes you remember the thoughts and imaginations that you may have thought; toys that live during the night after we go to our bed, goblins in the ancient times, giants and pixies. Each stories weren't too long and yet memorable, and the fonts were large enough so the book would not look like 'too long and boring' to kids in 3rd grade and above that wanted to grow an interest in reading.
