Lovely Volume


This is not only a lovely looking book, but a lovely feeling book. The binding and paper are of high quality and reflect the quality of the gorgeous illustrations. The narrative is amusing, but at this stage I am finding it more interesting than the baby is. Because it is such a beautiful book, I am keeping grubby hands away from it!



An excellent book from a first timer


This is an excellent book, aimed at the under sixes, also amusing and entertaining for the grandparents.
