The perfect golfing gift: A book that is a complete, working 9-hole miniature golf course, with miniature golf balls and putter included. The first book you can play through. The book that's a true original. Featuring nine themed courses, from pirates to dinosaurs to the classic windmill, The Miniature Book of Miniature Golf celebrates the silliness and the golf-for-everyone! attitude of Putt-Putt. Each page in the book is a cleverly designed hole, modeled on real mini golf courses. Tap the ball through the grooves and make sure to avoid the obstacles. Then see if you can get it in the clown's mouth on the last hole. Every hole is par fun.

***A 2016 National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA) winner You’ve never seen a book like this before! It’s the story of a train moving across the American landscape—but with an actual three-dimensional miniature train that loops up and down and across each spread, traveling along an interior track from front to back without ever leaving the pages. Move the red steam engine out of the depot and to the front of the book, where the sun is just coming up over a bay, and then take a journey across wide plains, up mountains and down hills, into a city at night with its beacons of light—and finally, back to the rail yard. The panoramic landscapes are filled with marvelous details that young children will delight in discovering, and the sweet, simple rhyming language pulls the story along and will be happily repeated when it’s time to start the journey all over again. All aboard!
