Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter (1866-1943). Her passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous little books. A particular source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.

Da diese Aufgabe aber die originalen Geschichten enthält, sollte Englisch verstehen, wer sie erwirbt.
Wer sie erwirbt, besitzt (oder verschenkt) einige der zauberhaftesten Tiergeschichten der Welt, in kleinen, sehr sorgsam edierten und produzierten Büchlein - immer eine Geschichte in einem Buch -, die perfekt in der Hand liegen und ein überdurchschnittliches sinnliches 'Vergnügen bereiten.
Für jeden Leser, gleich welchen Alters. Für jeden Vorleser. Für jeden Zuhörer, der vielleicht dabei noch ins Buch schauen darf, denn selbstredend enthält jeder Band auch alle originalen Illustrationen. In Farbe.
Es ist, als wären die kleinen Bücher für den Besitzer selbst verfasst. Ein halbes Jahr lang, jede Woche ein Buch. Und dann wieder von vorne.
Ich kann nur raten: Kauft. Genießt.

This review is regarding the poor printing quality of the books that are currently being sold.
Message to Amazon:I just ordered the presentation 23-box set and several individual books. The books are all printed in China. The quality of the printing is so poorly done that I am returning $200 worth of books. I am writing to ask if this is the new standard of publishing for Beatrix Potter books. I am working on a graduate paper and have purchased a large number of books written by Judy Taylor, Margaret Lane, and Leslie Linder--all experts in the work of Beatrix Potter. I purchased the complete set of books and individual ones so that I can compare the different editions with the original privately edition printed in 1901, the first Frederick Warne & Co. published edition in 1902, the centenary edition published in 2002, and the 110th edition published in 2012. There is a huge difference in the printing quality in paper texture and color quality with the recent new editions being sold by Amazon. The earlier new printings Amazon sold have an almost satin quality to them. The later ones have a rough almost grainy texture. The printing on all the recent editions appears as if they were printed on machines with low toner. The text and picture colors appear faded as if printed by amateurs. The quality is unbelievably poor!
Is there a quality control on these books? Is anyone checking to make sure that what is being sent to customers is a standard that you approve of? From all my research on Beatrix Potter, I understand she wanted to have the books printed as cheaply as possible to be able to reach as many children as possible, but 111 years later, we should expect a higher quality than what is being published opposed to even one year ago. Children and adults deserve a much better quality that is being produced at this time in China.
February 28, 1938, Beatrix Potter gave advice to Josephine and Delmar Banner regarding publication of their artwork. Rather than to have their work reproduced badly, she advised them to redesign the pages to allow for current publishing practices because, "Children deserve the best" (Letters 387).
Can you assure me that the quality of the books you sell are good quality and not these poorly printed editions?
Can someone follow-up with me to see what is being done about the poor quality of these books being sold on Amazon.com? Read the reviews and you will see this is a huge problem. I am a loyal Amazon customer. You can tell by my order history. You always stand behind the quality of your merchandise. I hope you will investigate and require answers from the vendors you are purchasing these books from. If this a problem with Penguin publishers in UK, they need to step up and implement a review of their quality control practices. I have also emailed Penguin Publishers in UK.
the stories are lovely, most people will know the story of Peter Rabbit and probably Jemima Puddleduck. There are some absolutely wonderful stories in this collection and you will really enjoy getting to know them with your children. The tale of Samuel Whiskers, Two Bad Mice, and Ginger and Pickles are particular favourites of my 3 and 4 year olds. As some characters turn up in other stories, it is a wonderful world for them to inhabit and identify with.
there may be some worries that, as they are 100 years old or so, some things in them are particular to the time and may not be easily explained - but why should this matter? Worlds are full of strange and wonderful things - of imperial measurements, strange rhymes and odd jobs. Of self-fitting candles and pounds, shilling and pence.
The characters are wonderful and the stories fun - beautifully illustrated too. I would also take this chance to highly recommend the animated dvd and videos of these stories, these are near perfect renditions of the stories and are great for the children to add to the experience - they have Niamh Cusack as Beatrix Potter part narrator.
I was perusing amazon, just for fun, and saw this set for a hundred bucks... I showed my sister....she encouraged the purchase...and I bought it. I'm in college, so a hundred bucks is like a thousand. It's a GREAT BUY, no doubt; this is a timeless collection, and this edition is a step up than the previous.
No regrets. Keeping it for my own kids.
