This review is regarding the poor printing quality of the books that are currently being sold.

Message to Amazon:I just ordered the presentation 23-box set and several individual books. The books are all printed in China. The quality of the printing is so poorly done that I am returning $200 worth of books. I am writing to ask if this is the new standard of publishing for Beatrix Potter books. I am working on a graduate paper and have purchased a large number of books written by Judy Taylor, Margaret Lane, and Leslie Linder--all experts in the work of Beatrix Potter. I purchased the complete set of books and individual ones so that I can compare the different editions with the original privately edition printed in 1901, the first Frederick Warne & Co. published edition in 1902, the centenary edition published in 2002, and the 110th edition published in 2012. There is a huge difference in the printing quality in paper texture and color quality with the recent new editions being sold by Amazon. The earlier new printings Amazon sold have an almost satin quality to them. The later ones have a rough almost grainy texture. The printing on all the recent editions appears as if they were printed on machines with low toner. The text and picture colors appear faded as if printed by amateurs. The quality is unbelievably poor!

Is there a quality control on these books? Is anyone checking to make sure that what is being sent to customers is a standard that you approve of? From all my research on Beatrix Potter, I understand she wanted to have the books printed as cheaply as possible to be able to reach as many children as possible, but 111 years later, we should expect a higher quality than what is being published opposed to even one year ago.

This is a wonderful little box set and ideal for new readers. Beatrix Potter stories vary in their quality of writing, but all are just wonderfully and whimsically illustrated. Lovely to have them all in their individual books rather than the large collected volume that we have been using at home. As another reader noted, this is great for little hands, but watch out they are easy to lose!

the stories are lovely, most people will know the story of Peter Rabbit and probably Jemima Puddleduck. There are some absolutely wonderful stories in this collection and you will really enjoy getting to know them with your children. The tale of Samuel Whiskers, Two Bad Mice, and Ginger and Pickles are particular favourites of my 3 and 4 year olds. As some characters turn up in other stories, it is a wonderful world for them to inhabit and identify with.

there may be some worries that, as they are 100 years old or so, some things in them are particular to the time and may not be easily explained - but why should this matter? Worlds are full of strange and wonderful things - of imperial measurements, strange rhymes and odd jobs. Of self-fitting candles and pounds, shilling and pence.

The characters are wonderful and the stories fun - beautifully illustrated too. I would also take this chance to highly recommend the animated dvd and videos of these stories, these are near perfect renditions of the stories and are great for the children to add to the experience - they have Niamh Cusack as Beatrix Potter part narrator.

The 23 original tales by Beatrix Potter comes in a sturdy presentation box. All 23 tales are of the original art work and are beautifully made. The books are small for little hands (just the way Beatrix Potter wanted them). The stories are classic and completely timless and brings backs many memories of childhood. They are perfect for adults and their little ones.

I'm a young adult, and I had most of the collection as a kid.

I was perusing amazon, just for fun, and saw this set for a hundred bucks... I showed my sister....she encouraged the purchase...and I bought it. I'm in college, so a hundred bucks is like a thousand. It's a GREAT BUY, no doubt; this is a timeless collection, and this edition is a step up than the previous.

No regrets. Keeping it for my own kids.

I bought this set for my 6 yr old son to read, but the entire collection is so beautiful that I had to give him "instructions" on how to open or hold the book... They are in the original small size Beatrix Potter wanted her books published to fit small children's little hands. All 23 books are in blue hard covers with the soft color sleeves, and the presentation box opened to a 3D drawing of the World of Peter Rabbit! I'm very satisfied with the purchase!!!

I have actually owned this set of books for almost 40 years and have read them repeatedly to my children (and myself). This new set is for one of my children and her new baby. Her fond memories of this series prompted her request for the books rather than some other baby item that some might have considered more "practical". As you can see, I have raised my children to have their priorities in order. No family, whether they have children or not, should be without this classic of children's literature!

The bookset has a lovely packaging. It even has a pop up picture on the inside cover of the box. The stories are heart warming and images in the books are beautifully rendered. The set is made of excellent material.
