5.0 out of 5 stars A great anytime of the day read. 24 Oct 2004
This is a pocket sized book with a simple story and really good colourful pictures. It's size makes it ideal to take in the car, and it's story was loved by my two children aged 2 and 4, who both love their Grandad!

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice story in mini format 25 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a lovely story that my father-in-law will love to read to my son but when it says 'mini book', it really is VERY mini. I was disappointed with the size of the book as it doesn't look like much of a gift.

3.0 out of 5 stars Minute copy 7 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This copy was definitely mini, approx 4 inches square, and so therefore not suitable for what I bought it for.
