Delightful and magical

I first came across this magnificent book many years ago and remain enchanted by it to this day. It is an utterly delightful book, and it is definitely not a book written just for children. For people who appreciate colourful art and illustration, this is a worthy addition to your collection.

It is a magical book to share with children too, though I suspect it simply may be too detailed to appeal to a child if left to read it themselves. It is the sheer complexity of the book that makes it attractive, and so much fun to share.

If you buy only one children's book for its illustrations, make it this one.
