Great Book, Worst Binding Ever
on August 9, 2011
It took my son weeks to demolish his first little version of this beloved book, which also had the plastic comb binding. I bought this one thinking it was bound in some other manner. It is a "deluxe" version, and even has a few pages that the first version we got (with stuffed rabbit included) did not have, but with in 15 minutes of his looking at it by himself, my 19 month old son (who has not destroyed any other book, ever) had this one separated from the hard cover, and now it's just the pages, which will soon be all apart as well. I'm serious, it took only a few minutes of his turning the pages by himself, quietly. I could sit down and work each plastic curl back into the holes of the cover, or I could take the whole plastic comb out and find some other way to hold it together, but I don't know what to do except look for another format of this book he loves, while trying to find a way to keep it in one piece just a little longer. This is a ridiculous way to put together a book for anyone under age 7. And I rarely leave reviews like this, I try and resolve the issue with the manufacturer but we have waited months for this book, and it's come apart in 15 minutes??? This is my first ever one star review, and it's sad, because this is a fantastic book.
