My kids and I were already familiar with the Rebekah series of short stories; I had previously bought the first four books and we've enjoyed reading and re-reading them. So, when I saw this reasonably-priced package I didn't hesitate in picking it up.
And I'm glad I did. The stories are fun and well-written, and now we can see the main characters, especially Rebekah and Mouse, (and their relationships with other people) develop over a longer story arc.
Mystery, a sense of wonder, humor, and common sense are recurrent themes in these stories and their value is quickly understood and appreciated by my children.
If your kids (girls especially, but younger boys too) are between 6 and 12 and like mysteries and whodunnits, I highly recommend this series. Keep 'em comin' Nanny P!
P.S. I should also add that although this is a large compilation, it's not unwieldy. The lay-out is easy to navigate and the TOC for all of the stories is hyperlinked.
