The book was for a Christmas present. When I noticed the tracking said delivered, but I never received it. Bridgette from Customer Service made sure I got one sent out right away. They really do care about their customers and making sure you have the best experience.

My Nephew loves the book and is already working on projects! Thank you Lay It Flat!
