Bought this for our son who was on a Peter RAbbit kick and wanted to have other stories to go with it. The set is beautiful in the box and well-bound. Unfortunately the story of the kittens is not very encouraging with a mom cat who makes some not very smart choices and then blames and lies about her kitty kids when they ruin their new clothes. Not the best role model story for the kids. Peter Rabbit is still the best. The other 2 books contain some humor for adults and a dreamy storytelling of life adventures on the farm which is fun (although how to explain to the little kids what happened to the "polite bushy-tailed gentleman"!!). There's a sense of Beatrix Potter talking to you as the reader and taking you through that world.
