There aren't many cutesy 4th generation Kindle case/covers. I wanted either animal print or plaid, and all I could find were decals. This case was the only cute non decal cover I could find that I liked. Let me tell you, the price was right, so I jumped on it. I am so glad too, as this item is just perefct. The case stays closed with a magnetic closure, the stand really stays in place and props the screen up at the perfect angle. If u don't want to use the stand, the flap stays in place by flipping the magnetic closure up backward. This case is the perfect blend of looks and function! And it fits the 4th generation Kindle perfectly.
