Bought this for my granddaughter - what a delightful book! For me, it brought back so many memories of the song, the era... And what fun to share that with her via this wonderful book.
Puff the Magic Dragon was my favorite song as a child, so I was so excited to see it as a book. It's a great book! The pop ups are very cool too!!
