Book was in much better shape than described. The seller took extra time and care into shipping this book. This book is wonderfully illustrated and we'll written. Great for kids and adults alike.

Overall excellent writing, very appropriately told for the age group (8-12) intended. To capture a child's imagination, wish more color had been used in the exquisite drawings.
