I bought this set for my grandson's 10th birthday. I started reading the 1st book to my son when he was 10 and in hospital after having his tonsils out (the boy in the next bed and his mum enjoyed the story too...) It became a favourite bedtime reading for all my children when they were young. I bought this in the hope that my son and grandson could enjoy similar memories. I was so impressed with the set, they are larger than I expected and very well presented, that I bought 2 more sets - one as a Christmas present for my daughter for her future family (she loved the idea) and one for myself to read to my grandchildren when they visit. A beautiful set that can be passed on.
