Format: Hardcover
The drawings in this book are lovely. If it were a picture book with only a few lines of writing, I would give it five stars. However, each picture has a story with it, most of which are not very well written. It's a shame, because if the stories were much shorter, it would be a great book to teach a little kid to read with.

I loved this book. The stories are great for children but are also witty enough to entertain adults. It's beautifully illustrated.

The book was in great condition. It was shipped and received very quickly, which is always a HUGE bonus. I am already done with it and it was really a cute book. I can see using it as a decoration on my coffee table or something.
