I love this book, 5 stars! The condition was less than I expected, even with the jacket, thus rating it a 3 star. If you are looking for a collectors item, keepsake, which this book should be, pay the higher price, or look for a book that you can see 1st hand. This book had torn pages that were repaired.

The purchase, and mailing were all done in a timely manner, even during the Holidays, this is a story book that teaches compassion, one that every home should have, and read, even the adults.
