    This is an amazing book The illustrations are truly stunning On the inside back cover it s mentioned that it took the author over 3 years to create the illustrations for this book and I was not at all surprised It can take a very long time to read this 32 page book, not because the text takes that long to read, but the illustrations are so profuse that it can take ages to find everything on each page This can be read by children to themselves but it s muchfun to read it with one anothe This is an amazing book The illustrations are truly stunning On the inside back cover it s mentioned that it took the author over 3 years to create the illustrations for this book and I was not at all surprised It can take a very long time to read this 32 page book, not because the text takes that long to read, but the illustrations are so profuse that it can take ages to find everything on each page This can be r...
