This is the cutest collection of Beatrix Potter books that I've ever come across.

The books are easy to slide out and back in, and are just as pleasant.

This set is very small! I purchased it because all four of my children LOVE the Peter Rabbit stories and our paperbacks were getting tattered and I was surprised at how inexpensive this set was. These are too small to be enjoyed at story time because they can't all see it. Of course these are the original stories and illustrations, which are enchanting. This would make a pretty gift for one child, not a library set for the family.

I don't know if all copies will be this way, but in my recent set, the Jemima Puddle Duck book is defective - containing many pages from the Tom Kitten book, and consequently missing many of its proper pages.

The other 3 books are fine and it is a very nice set. I would have given it a 5 otherwise.

First off: yes, this book set is fairly small. It is not, however, too small to read, or even to read comfortably, as long as you will not be trying to hold it up for a group of children to see as you go. (I purchased it as a baby-shower gift for first-time parents, so this should not be an issue.)

The case holding the four books is pleasant to both the eye and the touch, and appears to be sturdy, as such things go. The books are easy to slide out and back in, and are just as pleasant. The understated colours suit the classic story, and the match the traditional illustrations within the pages. Aside from the fact that it is an original, authorised copy, I was surprised - and pleased - to see that as a secondary bonus, both the books and their case were made from recycled materials, renewable resources, and vegetable-based inks.

The stories themselves are classic and, I'm certain, require no introduction nor qualifications.

As it is a gift, I neither have, nor will have, any information about how they hold up over time, but they seem from basic handling and investigation as though they will do well.

Got this small book set for a special little girl. She loved it. Nice small books for little hands to encourage early reading.

This is a great set of books to have for young children. The stories are very good, but short enough to keep the attention of small children. My grandchilden love the storie.

As some other customers complained, the Puddleduck book has some pages from the kitten book in the middle of it, and thus missing part of its story. Otherwise the set is darling.

My grandchildren are suprised as they find fun between the pages of this four book box. They sit in my lap and love me to read it to them. It even gives me pleasure to read about the mischieves of Peter Rabbit and his friends. They are starting to select a favorite, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, but they are thrillled to have them read to them when they come to my house. I bought them another set to keep at their house, so they are excited that they have one at home too.. So I went ahead and purchased a Peter Rabbit stuffed animal for my eldest grandchlild Laura, and I think that clinched the match. Thank you.
