NEW without tags. (You can tell still new because spine still very stiff and harder to open since it hasn’t been used. Spine hasn’t stretched yet). No coloring/writing on pages or ripped pages. If any light scratches/indents on hardcover, it’s just from sitting in storage. Lots of stories to choose from; we already have the entire collection of these. Pet friendly smoke free home. All books shipped via media mail due to weight.
