Bought as a gift Was well received and looked very nice when I had a little look before gifting it. A gift to someone who has everything, and who has a mother who puts a great deal of store in books. Ordered as a 60th birthday present recipient I loved it. While I love the idea of this book and it worked great as a little extra birthday present for my mum s 60th, I will say that you shouldn t expect the poetry to be of the same calibre as the A.A Milne it is a parody of I expected humour but it was still a good gift. If you grew up loving Winnie the Pooh, you will appreciate this A clever take on the childhood book Have been buying it for friends 60th birthdays and they have all loved it.
