Comments about Product: We own most of these books and my three children (preschool age) love them. We have read them many, many times over. They are very different from most "modern" children's books. Lots of imagination involved. Full of fairies, gnomes, trolls and flora and fauna. These appealed to children one hundred years ago and still do today.
Comments about Product: These stories are enchanting. I love the illustrations and how easily the author brings the reader right into the story. I read them to my children when they were small (now grown) and I frequently purchase them as gifts. They are treasures to both keep and share-my children are saving these books to pass down to their children; I am looking forward to reading them to my grandkids someday!
