We got this book for our daughter before we toured Hearst Castle on a California vacation and she really liked it--good info for younger kids about hearst and how this amazing place was built. Not dry and boring.

My wife ordered this book & didn't look at the page count. This is a tiny book (size of a childrens book) not worth the money.
