I have very fond memories of this book. Judy Blume in general, the continuing adventures of Peter, Shiela, the whole lot of them. And when I buy a reissue, there are some things which I expect. Changing the cover art is disconcerting, but I can adapt. But to actually go through the story, and change the text, in stupid little ways, because kids today may not know what a casette is? Heaven forbid they have to look a word up, or ask a teach or parent.
