Not a hard back as I know it
on 28 July 2005
I ordered this book for my friends one year old, but was disappointed with the book when it arrived. I ordered the hardback version of the book knowing it was for a young toddler, expecting it to be handled a little roughly. The book isn't what I would call a true hard back. It is toughened paper that wouldn't last the handling of little fingers. Throughout the story there are flaps to lift where surprises are discovered, but these too are quite flimsy in my opinion. The story itself is good but if you want this book, save yourself a couple of quid and buy the paperback version, as this isn't a true hardback! On the other hand I also purchased 'The Tickle Book' in hardback, which is a superior quality product in every way.
