The new editions are ENORMOUS compared to the old ones. A 2015 paperback is thicker than a 1930s hardback! I don't know if it was a deliberate choice by the publisher to make the books look good value for money. I think it is the margins which do it. And the slightly larger type.

Of course kids books are expected to be longer these days. I laugh when I compare the Narnia stories to the final Harry Potter or The Hunger Games etc. 1cm or less has grown to 3 or 5cm!
