4M Kids Labs Finger Print Kit by Great Gizmos

Very very disappointed.
Firstly, the item received was NOT the item advertised - no mention of the Science Museum on this packaging. Looked cheap. Very lightweight.
Secondly, the small print blurb on the box included words to the effect that the dusting powder may damage surfaces and is to be used only on the cloth provided. As I wanted this for my future forensic detective grandson, I was NOT impressed.
The single star is because the returned item was quickly refunded, no questions asked.

At last! A happy DiCamillo book! Beautiful illustrations, easy to read, a feel-good Christmas story. My 7-year old granddaughter loves it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Story, but ..., 18 Dec 2010
As a grandmother, I like to read the books I buy before giving them to my 7-year old granddaughter. I loved this, but - like all Kate DiCamillo's stories - it does have some troubling elements: death, abandoned children, and a woman who is crippled by the elephant falling on her legs (through the theatre roof!!).

DiCamillo has the same effect on me as Leonard Cohen's songs - her books need to be read at intervals, with happy stories in between!
