A Kid's Review
By no means a Pocket book - this is a heavy volume, but with excellent quality pictures and description.
Highly recommended and beautifully written

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR THE SHELF 3 Mar 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Chock full of interest and information. Very well illustrated. A great source for the reference shelf. There should be a series to cover a much bigger range in the same genre - well, I can dream, can't I?

This book was given to my daughter & son-in-law as a gift. They live abroad and have reported back that it is "wonderful" and they are "delighted". From the ordering & delivery aspects, as always with Amazon, efficient & trouble-free.
