Like your other reviewers, I was surprised and disappointed when I received this book as it is so tiny! While it is true that you can check the dimensions of a book by looking at the bibliographic details, I, too,feel the fact that this is a miniature book should have been stated quite clearly on the website, without customers having to search for this information.

I ordered this for my 8 month old neice and like the others was mislead by it being called a board book. I thought I must have misread it and made a mistake, but looking at the comments from others, I don't think this was my fault. I usually love ordering and recieving my books from here, but this was very disappointing. I'm not wondering what I'm going to do with this tiny little book...

I ordered two copies of this awesome classic story, it was categorised as a board book, and no mention was made as to the size, so I assumed it was normal size. I received hard cover books with paper pages that look cheap and nowhere near as good as the original, and both books have a stain on one page! This is in no way a board book! and as another reviewer said, it's the size of my hand! I'm really angry, they were meant to be christmas presents, but these aren't worth giving!

This book is not a board book. A board book means that all the pages are made of board. This is a tiny hardback with paper pages. Cute book, but disappointed with the product.

Great story but this should be described as a board book not a hardback.
