Abstract Perfection says: As a sort of test for publishing an ebook, I thought I'd play around with formatting a public domain title. I remember watching the animated movie based on this book when I was little and that prompted me to read the book a few months ago. I found it very enchanting and picked it as the book I would publish. Once I found the text, I spent way too much time correcting all the punctuation and making sure it displayed nicely in an ebook format. After that, I had way too much fun creating a cover. The goal of making this ebook wasn't sales, since I doubt that very many people will be clamoring after this, but it was nice to go through the whole process of formatting and publication.
