These have great reviews and I’m sure my son will love them for christmas but I thought for the price compared to other collections they would come in a box or similar. They’re just plastic wrapped, which isn’t as aesthetically pleasing and makes the look of the gift look cheaper than it is. But cannot comment on actual books or content until after Christmas:)
Bought as a gift but have heard they are really enjoyable so far!
Such a bargain. My son loves it!
