Great Book

My son devoured every picture! He took it out of the library multiple times, so it was worth the investment!

This was a gift for my grandson. Its always handy and no need to wait for boot-up time to look something up.

I purchased this for my 10 year old grandson, the updated version and he loves it. Calls me after each chapter to tell me about it.
