About the Author
Brian Selznick’s books have garnered countless accolades worldwide, and have been translated into more than 35 languages. He is the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of the #1 New York Times bestsellers The Invention of Hugo Cabret, adapted into Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning movie Hugo; and Wonderstruck, adapted into the eponymous movie by celebrated filmmaker Todd Haynes, with a screenplay by Selznick; as well as the New York Times bestsellers The Marvels and Baby Monkey, Private Eye. Most recently, he illustrated the 20th anniversary paperback edition covers of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.
Mary GrandPré has illustrated more than twenty beautiful books, including The Noisy Paint Box by Barb Rosenstock, which received a Caldecott Honor; Cleonardo, the Little Inventor, of which she is also the author; and the original American editions of all seven Harry Potter novels. Her work has also appeared in the New Yorker, the Atlantic Monthly, and the Wall Street Journal, and her paintings and pastels have been shown in galleries across the United States. Ms. GrandPré lives in Sarasota, Florida, with her family.

This box set was released as part of the 20th anniversary of the first book being released. I had wanted a boxed paperback set for a while but held off since I didn't see anything that I "had to have" until now. This set is very nice and should be a must for any Harry Potter fan. I did read reviews of other boxed sets and saw some negative comments saying that some books had duplicate pages or even chapters. I looked over what I received and I don't see any of those problems in any of the 7 books. The only negative I have is that my copy of the 7th book has a slight gap between the cover and the first page where the glue wasn't applied as it was at the bottom. I'm not a big reader and I'm careful with my things so I don't think there will be a problem with that area.
What I like:
-The books are a larger paperback size than what I have at home for other books from a different series.
-The black and white covers are lovely and I like the picture all the covers create when they are next to each other.
-The books have the first chapter of the next book at the very end.
-The books seem to be the same size as the ones released individually so if something happens to a book you can easily replace it.
-I can finally use the special bookmarks (pictured, and NOT included in the boxed set) that I purchased to use as I read each book.
What I'm not crazy about:
-The box the books get stored in is made out of cardboard - not the most appealing way to store the books but the box looks great, is sturdy, and it should keep the books in good condition for years to come.

A unica coisa que deixa um pouco a desejar é a qualidade das folhas, da a sensação que vão se rasgar a qualquer momento. Porém o tamanho dos primeiros livros são excelentes, dando para segurar com apenas uma mão.
Estou no primeiro livro, mas estou amando!!!
Found them cheaper at Costco the only reason it got 4 star..
Per il resto, il magnifico mondo di Harry Potter.
