Agree with the other reviewer that some illustrations would be nice but I don't think their absence really detracts from the book.
The beautifully illustrated jacket is a big draw, and the inner printed contents are pleasing and plentiful - except that a chance was missed to complete to pleasures with a few colour illustrations. There are two b/w line drawings in one poem ("Mr and Mrs Spikky Sparrow" - !) but that's it for illustrations, book-wide.
Yes, it may have cost a bit more, but for a book like this - we'd pay it, I'm sure.
So - I'll have to content myself with using my lovely colourful "bird" bookmark instead, as I enjoy the contents.
So near ... but so far.
