Each different set is unique enough to have its own merit, but whatever you do get a complete unabridged set. My personal set which has begun falling to pieces was published by Harper Collins. The only reason I have yet to replace them is because I love the artwork. Some of the original illustrator's images are at the head of each chapter, and the cover art is stunning. Whatever you do, don't get a set with the film pictures inserted it will really cut back on the imaginative process. Good luck finding your set, I hope you love them!
Yes, I already bought and received my Narnia book set just after Thanksgiving! I purchased the special collector's edition and it is great. I read the first 4 books, and they were great! Cannot wait to read the rest of books!
