"Each story is written in a simple manner, without losing its original storyline and can be finished in a single sitting! What makes this series a must-have in every home library, besides being an early introduction to such popular literature, is its beautiful illustrations, colourful and different font sizes for 'big words' and snippets of fun facts, which makes them an enjoyable read!"
