Flexible cover boards attractive but not without flaws of edge wear including a few small closed tears, a chip, and slight splitting in an area near the top of the rear cover. Internally just about perfect with all of the illustrations and pop-up illustrations colorful, bright, intact, and movable as intended. The last page has a tear at the top along the binding thickness, as the construction of this book causes stress along the thicker portion near the spine. Bookseller Inventory #
