Great pictures but they ruined it!
on 2 November 1998
The original edition of this book was better! It was made to be read with the children sitting in front of you. The text (which is great) was on the back & the pictures were 2 full pages in front for the kids to study while you read. This one has the pictures shrunk so small you can't even start to appreciate the detail & great work & the text often takes up more space than the pictures. It's still worth having if you don't have an earlier edition because these are the best paintings of santa ever. Whoever did this though should be ashamed & republish the original which is the greatest book on santa ever written.
