Complete Collection of Peter Rabbit 110th Anniversary edition 2011.
on 31 October 2011
I have just recieved the latest collection of the Peter Rabbit 1-23 Books 110th Anniversary Edition I am totally disappointed. I was expecting something special, but cannot find anything to recommend this collection. The cardboard box is soft and will soon dint and look shabby. The biggest disappointment is the illustrations. Beatrix Potter is famous for her beautiful water colour pictures, vivid and exciting to children. The ones in this collection are dull and lifeless. The figures on the outside of the box are as they should be, bright, crisp and colourful which only makes it worse, the fact that the publishers are aware of how they should look, but have produced a cheap mediocre collection.
I was looking forward to giving these books as a special gift, sorry to say it won't happen.
