Wordcandy loves the annotated editions

I love W.W. Norton's collection of annotated classics. I own both The Annotated Alice: the Definitive Edition and The Annotated Brothers Grimm--which we reviewed--and I aspire to one day own a copy of their Annotated Wizard of Oz. (Something tells me that's the kind of book that really lends itself to annotation.)

Norton's annotated editions are beautiful and useful, full of fascinating information about the text and author(s), so I was extremely excited to see that they'll be releasing an annotated version of The Secret Garden this fall. Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic novel is one of my favorite children's books, and I'm confident that Norton will produce an edition worthy of her story.

Note: The "collection" link above provides a list that's several years out-of-date, but you'll find more annotated titles by searching Norton's catalog.
