Hardcover version has a MAJOR printing issue.
Reviewed in the United States on June 5, 2021
Stay away from the Hardcover version until the publisher fixes the issue with this printing!
For those purchasing the hardcover, be aware the text of the book is printed in red which would make it difficult to read even if printed correctly.
I received a misprinted version where many (about a quarter) of the page backgrounds are also dark red, making it impossible to read. Amazon sent a replacement right away, but unfortunately the replacement had the same issue even worse than my first copy.
Very disappointing quality control at BOTH Puffin Books and Amazon.
This review is for the printing, not the story. Fantastic Mr. Fox is a wonderful children's book.
