Beware: very abridged!
on 16 April 2012
I bought this set because my 3-year-old son loves the Mr. Greedy book, and it was a good price.
Warning to other buyers: these books are very short versions of the Little Miss books (four very small pages of text, with 1 to 3 sentences each), and lack the detail that makes the moral of the stories stick. Reading the abridged Little Miss Trouble to my son is almost certain to encourage him to cause trouble. In contrast, while he acknowledges that he is often like Mr. Greedy, at least he knows very well that eating too much, and taking other people's food, can have negative consequences.
In summary: Great if you're looking for board books with upbeat pictures for little fingers, really poor if you had the large books in mind.
