3.0 out of 5 stars Wished for better illustrations, November 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Enchanted Collection: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Secret Garden, Black Beauty, The Wind in the Willows, Little Women (The Heirloom Collection) (Hardcover)
In a nutshell, I wished for more detailed, better illustrations/ richer color plates considering the cost of this set, or even gilded pages. At the time I ordered this, I could not preview the books. I really just wanted to replace my missing copy of Black Beauty for my daughter and could not find any one comparable to my old one in terms of lovely illustrations, this copy only has about ten per book in limited colors and detail. The books are not gilded but do have ribbon bookmarks. At first glance flipping through Alice in Wonderland, the font and spacing seemed a lovely choice for a young chapter book reader as my daughter is... But Little Women must weigh a few pounds, I can't imagine a younger reader tackling that one without serious carpal tunnel syndrome (though it's a long book regardless of the typeset, just buyer beware, this copy is heavy!).
All that being said, it is a nice collection of classics, the box flips open and closed with a very nice magnetic feature, and although made of some type of heavy duty cardboard/paper product, the box seems pretty durable.
