I got this from Amazon vine a couple of months back and it is quite different than any books I have seen.
It is like a set of masks joined together into a book, rather than being a story. There are very few words in the books, just a couple of phrases on each page like "I'm a proud pirate - ahoy there!" or "I'm a wicked witch - cackle cackle!"
It includes 4 masks which are a robot, superhero, witch and pirate so I would say its slightly more suited to boys generally but some girls may still like it.
The quality is good, the book is strong and thick cardboard and the holes for the eyes and handles of the mask are well placed and easy to use for the child. The pictures are very bright and nice.
My 3 year old found this book fun and very funny to play with, so I was happy with it. However some of the "pop up" peices have been torn off due to my little one, which is a shame so I would say it is one to keep away from the younger siblings and I would not recommend this really for a child under 2 years, as it is likely to be ripped.
There is not really much to it as it is only 4 masks and a simple idea, but it works well for what it is. We keep it with the dressing up things rather than in the book shelf as its really more of a "masks kit" than a story book.
I would recommend it overall as the retail price is under 4 pounds so really for that price you can not go wrong, if you have a child who enjoys masks and dressing up. There are also different versions in the same series like "on the farm" so you can choose the theme your child would prefer.
