Usually when our Parragon Book arrives I show the girls are we read them that night. This months Parragon Book is slightly different. I opened the envelope and was simply taken away by the beauty of the book. The silver on dark blue, the details and every aspect of the book is simply beautiful. I have decided to put the book away and give it to the girls for Christmas.
Whilst I am unable therefore to do a review in the traditional sense, as I cannot tell you what the girls think as they have not seen it, I can tell you that I love this book. I keep taking it from its hiding place to sneak a look and read one of the eight classic stories by Hans Christian Anderson. I adore everything from the illustrations in the book to its classic look and feel. I am looking forward to seeing the girls faces on Christmas day when they open the book for the first time and watch their faces become enchanted by the classic stories. I cannot wait to snuggle up on the sofa with them and read them the stories.
I apologies therefore that I cannot do a review as I normally would but this is a book that was too good and too beautiful for now. This is a book that had to be given to the girls as a present and one which I hope they will treasure forever.
