    A statement from Usborne following customer feedback on 1000 Summer Stickers: Usborne apologises for the editions of the 1000 Sticker Book series where the stickers were not adhering to the pages. This was due to a batch of material produced that did not meet the required levels of tack to adhere to the pages.

    We are now using a higher level of tack on the stickers to avoid repetition of the problems encountered from the original batch of stickers.
