Beautiful little hardback book. Gorgeous illustrations inside. Looks beautiful as a display book but is also a great read. I love how the edges of the pages are all silver too! I think it is so pretty, so after purchasing one for myself I’ve also purchased one as a gift! A great price too. I would definitely recommend this book !
