Reviews - What do customers think about Living Jewels: The Natural Design of Beetles (Minis)?
Adorably little but the description should have said so.... Jan 14, 2008
This is a beautiful book, with incredible photos of beetles. My sons (age 4 and 8) were constantly fighting over having a turn looking at it. Which leads me to the drawback of the book...it's TINY! Why doesn't the description say this? It's like a mini book. So, when the boys were fighting over it, I put it in my pocket, and then it got lost...so I am buying another one.
my step daughter LOVED it!!! THANKS!!! Jan 8, 2008
I got this as a Christmas gift for my stepdaughter, who likes beetles, and she loved it.
Overpriced Dec 8, 2007
Despite reading other reviews, I didn't fully appreciate how small this book is until I saw it in person. The pictures are pretty, but this book is hardly worth $8.
tiny overpriced Jun 11, 2007
Book is very tiny, less than five inches by 3 and a half inches. It is a mini taken from a full sized book. Way overpriced.
not happy Apr 10, 2007
I was disappointed in this book,if I had seen it on a shelf before hand I would have bypassed it all together. Very little information and not enough listing for referrence use. Would not recommend to anyone.
