4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful stories, good value, but something is missing, 15 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Large Family Collection: "Five Minutes' Peace", "All in One Piece", "A Piece of Cake", "A Quiet Night in": "Five ... Piece", "A Piece of Cake", "A Quiet Night In" (Hardcover)
I (and my son) became fans of the Large family since we read the first book, Five Minutes Peace. I was looking for hardback edition with all four stories, alas without success. So... as soon as this book appeared at Amazon I've ordered it although we already had all the four books in paperbacks. I have to say I am slightly disappointed by this edition compared with paperback versions. Some of the pictures got too small while others (for instance, my son's favourite one where the dieting elephants get rid of crisps, bisquits and bananas) have disappeared altogether. If you have kids and never had any of the Large family books, buy this book. It is great value and stories are just wonderful. You will love them. But if you've got the original paperbacks, don't hurry to throw them away.

This is a very useful review, but I think it would be even more useful filed in the reviews for "The Large Family Collection", which is what the review is about, rather than here, under " A Quiet Night In". If I had read this at the appropriate place, I would not have bought the collection, but stuck to the individual copies. Doesn't anyone at Amazon check the reviews?
