Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 stars for the book, 0 stars for Indigo quality control This is a really nice book, that is perfect for a gift. Too bad the copy Indigo shipped me had a damaged cover. It was clear to me that it was shipped this way, as there was no damage to the carton it arrived in. As I paid top-dollar for the library binding, I expected nothing less than pristine condition when it arrived but part of the cover was scrunched in. I cannot believe that whomever packed that would think it was acceptable. Since I cannot give that as a gift to my niece at her birthday party, I will be returning it and ordering another copy that will (hopefully) arrive intact. Thank goodness there is still enough time to do that, considering it is not in stock at my local stores. If you want a keepsake, definitely spend the extra $$ and get the library binding. As reviews on other sites will tell you, the pages fall out easily on the regular binding.
