Yes, I also bought multiples of these for the present drawer (6 I think) and they are tiny! the size should be stated, it is quite misleading

By Ngaire 20 Dec 2013 1

I ordered two of these books for Christmas presents and they are tiny miniature versions!! Off to the store now to find the proper books... Be careful! There is no indication that you're buying a mini book.

By Emma Ostwind 24 May 2012 1

Me too. So disappointing! No indication anywhere of how small it is. And especially so as I bought the book for our local playcentre to read in a group.

By Julia Briskoski 23 Mar 2011 1

I received this book and it was sooo small! No where on the description does it state its a miniature book and not standard size. I was quite dissappointed upon recieving.
