I bought this book for my 6 year old nephew. He loves the movie. And he loves this book! Every page is a new exciting pop up surprise. We even discovered extra hidden pop ups as we went along in the pages. He can't put it down. Anyone who is a fan of the movie, I would definitely recommend this book.
Purchased for my daughter for Christmas. Very Cool!
While the book is beautiful, twice I have ordered this book and twice the book came to me damaged. First the spine was cut like whoever opened the delivery box in Corporate was not careful with their box cutter. The box comes with a pull tab so no I did not cut it myself. The second time the cover was caved in like someone had stepped on it. I will not try a third time. I am sad that there is no quality control for this book as far as ordering online and shipping. It truly is lovely from what little I could see. If my store still had copies I would be happy to own it but I am just too afraid to try ordering it again.
