More About This Product

My two sons, Harper and Will, absolutely loved this book when they were growing up!

We still have our original paperback copy which is now dog-eared and taped together, so I was delighted when I discovered this new hardcover edition.

When my boys saw that I had ordered this book to offer through Bella Luna Toys, they both exclaimed how "awesome" it is and recalled fondly the many projects they made with the help of this book.

Harper, now 21 years old, opened The American Boy's Handy Book for the first time in years and found new inspiration. He decided that he would finally tame a wild crow!
