      When I say this book is gorgeous, I don t mean it looks merely pretty, or even beautiful I mean the colors are rich, the lines vivid, the faces real I would say that the text is sweet, but that s like saying gold or honey is kinda yellow Honey isn t half as sweet as this book, anyway.If you can only buy one bedtime book this year, make it this one You won t regret it.
