5.0 out of 5 stars Just Beautiful! - highly recommended, 19 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Originals: Illustrated Wind in the Willows (Usborne Illustrated Story Collections) (Usborne Illustrated Originals) (Board book)
Bought this together with a copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland from the same series and cannot rate them highly enough!

Every Christmas we buy Hardback editions of "Classic" stories for our grandaughter, who is an avid reader now aged 8. We write a message and the date on the inside cover and hope that she will enjoy and look back on them for years to come... So far we've bought all the Beatrix Potter and Rupert Bear, and this year she said she would like a copy of the Wind in the Willows, hence this purchase. Found "Alice" at the same time and can report that one is just beautiful as well.

The book is a beautiful size, just about A5, and although quite thick, is a great size for a child to hold and read independently - something I think always needs to be a consideration as we have been caught out in the past with very large books that were unwieldy for a child to read alone if they wished. (I wish the listings would show the actual size/weight of the book, this is my only criticism of Amazon).

The quality is fantastic - the paper is thick, beautifully printed and illustrated, and even the inside cover has a rich red and white pattern which suggests it cost far more than it actually did. There is a ribbon page marker too.

Overall a gorgeous book which I can highly recommend, especially if looking for something that may be treasured for years to come.
