4.0 out of 5 stars Original illustrations but... April 17 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had searched high and low for a set or series of the Oz books with the original illustrations as I had read from the library as a child. This was the best and most affordable option. It does contain the original illustrations and the hard cover is good. My only qualm is that the printing is somewhat inferior. There are some pages printed at a slightly off angle or with some words missing. It is perfectly readable but not of the highest quality.
5.0 out of 5 stars If you want a physical copy, this is one to consider! Dec 30 2013

Really happy with these books. They seem sturdy, are illustrated, and with being paperback/good quality, seem kid friendly. I spent quite a bit of time online looking for the best version. I didn't realize this originally, but since it's not copyrighted (or something along those lines), anyone can publish this. One review of a different set said part of one of the books was missing! I wanted a complete version with pictures (which this has) that wasn't $200 on ebay. There was a hardback version online that looked nicer and was cheaper (especially for the whole set) but it wasn't illustrated (which was really important since my sister's kids range from 4 to 10. I ordered the first two volumes for my sister's kids for Christmas and my sister was thrilled to receive them. Buying all of the versions at once would be pricey, but if you space it out over time (Christmas, birthdays) it's not too bad. We grew up having our mother read to us so I'm happy my sister can carry on that tradition. All that being said, if you own a kindle, you can buy the whole series (illustrated) for $0.99 (which I did yesterday for myself lol). If you want a physical copy, these books are definitely the way to go. But if you or the receiver own a kindle or tablet, I'd definitely go that route.
