1.0 out of 5 stars terrible, 28 April 2014
Probably one of the worst childrens book I've come across. DO NOT GO BY PREVIOUS REVIEWS!
I see the two reviews already posted giving 5 stars (one from the author herself) saying this book has excellent illustrations and narrative. The bear is terrifying throughout the book but not as terrifying as the use of MS paint for the illustrations!
36 pages of awful childlike drawings with matching type font, with a story that is boring and long winded.

I bought these because the description said the colours and patterns are suitable for both boys and girls.

When i got the pack, i received 4 very girly cloths and 4 subtle pastel cloths. I had read from other reviews that a cycle in the wash fluffs up the material but i found the patterned cloths to be thin, practically see through and close to disintegration and didn't fair to well on the first wash. The plain ones however feel nice and soft.

Description could have been clearer, with images of all possible variations. Would rather have spent a bit more money knowing exactly what i was going to get...
