  "I purchased two versions of this book for my son as a gift for his birthday. He saw it somewhere during a visit with family and wanted a copy. I haven't given it to him yet. There is another three weeks or so before his birthday. The book, at first glance appears to be as described. But I am unable to really get a look at it. My son is Autistic and watches my every move. I won't get to really look at it until I give it to him. It was shipped properly and appeared warned around the edges, a little smudged. But I could not really get a good look. The big thing will be if there is any writing in it. My son will not like that. I think that it was a good price for the book overall, from what I could see. I did not have any problems in receiving it."
