    Extremely satisfied customer here! This is now my second order of this book from modernfirst. The poems are so cute & charming, that I bought a second copy for a gift. Like the first copy, this book is in excellent, near mint condition (better than its photos) without marks or musty smells. Absolutely superb, protected packaging & rapid shipping! I couldn’t be happier with both purchases! I highly recommend this seller & collection. Will happily purchase from modernfirst in the future. Thank you!
