    satisfactory

    Bought this book set as a Christmas gift for a young girl. I was happy with the shipping that it came in on a weekday (had the large package shipped to my work) since the party was a weekend or two before Christmas. The books were nice looking. Hardcovers were intact and the string bookmark added a nice touch.

    WONDERFUL VALUE

    This is a great deal. The editions are beautifully bound, have black and white "old" illustrations, and, of course, they are all classics (with the possible exception of Anne of Avonlea). This is a perfect gift for an intelligent, old-fashioned girl of 8-10, depending on her reading level. (The Burnett books are the easiest reads, I think, so I would recommend starting with those.)

    The books themselves, are timeless, and although more than just a little "preachy", they are extremely entertaining once the modern girl becomes used to the style and advanced vocabulary, so missing in today's novels for children and tweens. I especially enjoy -- still! -- Anne of Green Gables and Little Women, but then who has (voluntarily) read those books when a young girl, and did not enjoy them?!

    To repeat, an exceptional value and you will be providing hours and hours of GOOD entertainment for very little money.

    P.S. The books are also great to donate as new gifts, as they could definitely be sold as individual editions.
