5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and beautiful book 6 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my new god-daughter's christening primarily because I couldn't afford £80 for the set of individual books. I was delighted with the book - it's in a presentation case which looks great, the illustrations are exactly as in the original books and all in all it's a terrific present. Incredible value and highly recommended!

This is a single boxed book which is truly beautifully presented. The original pictures and stories in all their splendour are laid out with loving care. If like me, you do not have room for the 23 little books in a boxed set, this is simply a wonderful alternative. It would be a fantastic present or a perfect book that will make a great impact on your bookshelves. I maybe 50 and have never read a Beatrix Potter story before, but this has certainly caught my attention and made my day!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 25 Aug 2009
By Dave
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book for my daughter, of 27!! She knew the characters from childhood, but her interest in Beatrix Potter and her animal characters was revived following a visit to the Lake District earlier this year. I saw a second-hand copy of the book in London, but at the time didn't want to spend a day carrying it around. I was therefore delighted to find that Amazon were offering the same book new, for very little more. It is an absolute treasure for anybody who appreciates quality and still has a spark of childhood in them - not to mention children!

I confess to having read a couple of the stories before I even handed it over. An excellent purchase and fantastic value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beatrix Potter Complete Tales 1 Jun 2004
This is a stunning book, to keep and of course, to read. It comes in its own covering to keep special, the drawing inside are spectacular and so, so beautiful. What mother couldn't love turning the pages of this beautiful book as she turns the pages to read to her children.
This is one I will keep very, very special and one day hand down to my own children. There is another version of this in individual books which is lovely but, to have this in one complete collection is truly adorable.
Well worth the money and a great price from Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 28 Nov 2008
When I went through the book I could remember the movie played with Renee...Miss Potter. How magicals are drawings and how creative is the story, so easy to get into it! I really recommend this book for kids but also grown-ups. Nice present for Christmas eve I guess.
Regarding the way how tales are presented, this is quite genius as well as everything is merged into just only one book, a good quality about the cover. Nice choice.

Beatrix Potter acquired her love and knowledge of animals and the countryside during family holidays in Scotland. She also had animals as her constant companions as a child. She sketched and observed them for hours at a time.
Beatrix Potter's books have never lost their popularity. They are sold by the millions and have been translated into over fifteen languages. While her first story in 1902, "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" was published in a small edition by Frederick Warne, within a year it was an instant best seller.
This deluxe volume is a collection of all twenty-three tales and some previously unpublished works. The stories are arranged in the order of publication as several are linked together by events or familiar characters.
Both the watercolors and black and white illustrations have been included. Children will adore the rhyming names of goosey gander and pig-wig. The animals seem to almost take on human personalities. In fact, these magical stories are often connected with real people places or animals.
Little girls who have a doll house will love "The Tale of Two Bad Mice," in which two hungry mice try to eat the artificial plaster doll food. Even at my age I found it irresistibly amusing. These little animals just have such great personalities.

Format:Audio CD
Having great actors like wonderful Patrica Routledge (Hyacinth Bouquet, Hetty Wainthropp etc)reading the stories from classic Beatrix Potter's wast universe really is nothing less then magnificent!
This compilation is a fantastic gift for children and adults alike. Beautifully presented in a pack of 3 double cd's in a carboard caseing, it is easy to store as well.
23 stories consisting of a good six hours listening! All of the characters in Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddleduck, Jeremy Fisher and the rest, really comes to life!I just love this, as does my children.
Well worth buying!
