Beautiful quality book - we were looking at the Blue Fairy Book on Amazon and it was more expensive for a cheaply made, poorly-reviewed copy on there. This one is gorgeous, with gold binding and a ribbon and was only about half the price?! Really happy that I remembered to check Rainbow Resource instead!
