It's a fantastic set (on a bit of a Beatrix Potter kick here as we went to Hill Top during the summer). I picked it up, as a Christmas present also, last time it appeared here.

I also got that Roald Dahl Collection for 15.99.

Insane savings

The copy I ordered turned up yesterday and it's a gorgeous set. Nice solid box, each book is hardback and looks really nice.

Highly recommended at this price.

Cool - I was wondering if there were other versions given the prices elsewhere. Couldn't say it's worth £100, but £30 is a huge bargain.

Typical as I work for Tesco so would also have got 10% off too. I'm lazy though so sticking with the order from The Book People
Are you sure? Looks like it's £80 here!

I'd say a 2 year old would love being read the stories. Hell - ours isn't born yet and I've already bought them!

I've bought these for my niece who is also 2. In mind that they can be read to her and then use later to read herself hopefully
