5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully illustrated. Amazon packaging - unsatisfactory.
Reviewed in the United States on February 14, 2021
Such a beautiful illustrated edition! My children and I adore the illustrations.

Packaging - unsatisfactory. Amazon, you need to do a better job packaging books. This expensive, brand new hardcover arrived with bumped corners. Simply putting a book in a cardboard box, with nothing to keep it protected from shifting during shipment, is unsatisfactory. This is not the first book that’s arrived damaged. I would return it, but I know the replacement wouldn’t be packaged any better 😤 I think I will start buying our books from retailers who take pride in how they package their books.
