I would give this book only three stars except my grandson loves it. The smells are sort of lame but the whole concept of scratch and sniff is something my grandson appreciates. He has read it over and over again and I am sure it will be a Christmas a Classic for him. They would’ve hit it out of the ballpark had they made the smells a little bit more realistic. I mean, how hard is it to put peppermint on a page and have it really smell like a candy cane? It smells Just sort of minty. Perhaps the book needs to be wrapped to keep the smells fresh before they’re sold.
