Buyers beware!! Grayscale and disappointed
on July 19, 2013
The Jesse Bear books are very beautiful and I wish I could get all of them for my little grand daughter. I ordered two in the series and am delighted with the beautiful watercolours and illustrations with the first one I opened. However, this second one,which is also significantly more expensive, is all in grayscale on the inside. This is so very disappointing as the pair was meant to be a special gift for the little one. The 'detailed pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations' as described on its back cover was a major reason for choosing this book. Replacing the item in time is out of the question as I am about to make the trip overseas to visit my grandbaby. Unfortunately this is yet another time I have been disappointed with the Amazon service. Generally all works well and I will still cautiously recommend Amazon. Nevertheless, the grayscale of what could have been a very beautiful, appealing book for a little one just does not work.
