I found this to be very short and very light --- a quick, enjoyable read. Allow yourself several pages to fall into the rhythm of the language, which is a large part of the fun. Mr. Sudgeberry is SO pompous and SO oratorical --- he never uses one syllable when three are close to hand and usable; five are even better.
I found this on Internet Archive (NOT Gutenberg, lack of interest maybe?) Three full-page tinted illustrations. Chapter decorations treated with alpha transparency to give a cut-out effect --- I hope it works.
Hope you enjoy it!
