A bit torn about this purchace. Firstly, as per the rest of reviews, the "box" is a very flimsy piece of paper that came damaged. So I would not recommend it as a gift. Secondly, the books arriving in 3 sets is not a problem, not for me at least. My problem is that on the books there are stickers saying "Daily Mail voucher/physical copy", which leads me to believe that this is old newspaper freebie or one of those voucher collection exchange scheme that Daily Mail is running from time to time. Again, impossible to gift. However, it is a nice collection of classics, and a must read for teens. Buy at your own discretion.
Books arrived and are great, but was expecting it to be boxed as in the picture. Books though arrived in 3 sets, packaged in plastic with no display box which is disappointing
great value. only downside is the flimsy cover but this does not effect the actual books.
Great collection of stories bought as a gift for a friends baby girl. No issues with the books themselves, however the sleeve was badly ripped when it arrived so can't be used to store the books in. A tad disappointing as it's a huge tear and couldn't have happened during transit as it was well padded so it was packed and sent knowing it was damaged. Overall, great for the cheap price but shame the sleeve was ripped as it won't look so good to give as a gift.
This collection is very good, all the classics, my young niece is enjoying them so much The only down fall of this collection is the outer box, when I opened the parcel it was torn all along one edge.
Bought set of 'classic' books as a future present for one of my grandchildren. Having read some of these many years ago I would recommend these enjoyable reading books for young teenagers.
Great value for the price all my favourite titles that I read when I was younger
