Good stocking filler.
Nice book with good story line and nicely illustrated. Quick delivery and very good value with groupon offer. Wouldn’t pay full price and ordering confusing with having to pay in two stages. Overall very pleased and it will be a stoking filler for my 6 year old grandson.
Excellent. Very well presented and speedy delivery.
