There's nothing worse than finding a great pop-up, 'lift the flap' or sticker book in your local bookshop that has taken a battering from children passing through the doors and playing with it! If you can't find the a copy of the book you want to buy as a gift for your children, their friends or relatives, then think about buying the book from an online bookseller. That way you will receive a pristine copy that hasn't already had all the flaps pulled or pop-up's bent!
Increasingly children's books are sold with additional 'parts', such as magnetic characters, toy bricks or accompanying cuddly toys. Buying these books online can be both cheaper and more rewarding than buying degraded copies from bookshops or supermarkets.
