Barnes & Noble, Please ADD A DESCRIPTION for this product, and INCLUDE THE TITLE AND AUTHOR OF EACH BOOK. I viewed this on my iPhone, and was unable to immediately determine which books are included in the boxed set. The image is small. I was unable to click on the image (hoping to view a clear, large image) when in mobile view. My only option was to zoom-in on my phone, but that was no help because the image became blurry as it grew larger. This was very frustrating! I really wanted to know which books were included in the set, so I continued on. I switched from mobile view to desktop view, and suddenly the image was clear. I could read the Titles and the Authors. I could click on the image and view it larger (and it was still clear). I don't know why mobile view and desktop view are different, but they are and it's a problem (at least for some). I should not have had to go through all of the steps that I did to learn what should have already been included/stated. Not everyone will do what I did. Many will just move on, and you will miss the opportunity to sell the Children's Collectible Editions Boxed Set. I have listed the six books that are included with the boxed set for others who may experience the same issue. Children's Collectible Editions Boxed Set(Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions ISBN-13: 9781435161375): The Story of King Arthur and His Knights (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions) by Howard Pyle Greek Myths: A Wonder Book for Girls & Boys (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions) by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Walter Crane (Illustrator) Treasure Island (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions) by Robert Louis Stevenson, N.C. Wyeth (Illustrator) Peter Pan (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions) by J. M. Barrie Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions) by Lewis Carroll, John Tenniel (Illustrator) Grimm's Fairy Tales (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions) by Brothers Grimm, Jakob Grimm, Wilhelm Grimm, Noel Pocock (Illustrator)
This is an amazing set full of gorgeous looking books. The box is an extremely sturdy cardboard, that seems hard to break, and each book seems sturdy enough to withhold being read numerous times. The set includes The Story of King Arthur and his Knights by Howard Pyle, Greek Myths: A Wonder Book for Boys and Girls by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll, and Grimm's Fairy Tales by the Brothers Grimm. Each novel is so gorgeous, bound in sturdy leather, has beautiful endpages, has gilded pages, and comes with a ribbon bookmark. The books look great on the shelf, and each classic is the complete and unabridged work (with the exception of Grimm's Fairy Tales, which contains just 55 fairy tales.) This set will include hours of entertainment for young and old alike!
