My wife and i are both huge HP fans. We grew reading the books when we were 10 & 11. These 'picture' books are bringing our imaginations to life in beautifully drawn pictures. Note: this is not a picture book with minimum/abbreviated text it is the complete 3 books with added pictures of things/people in the books. We love them.

The books themselves were in great condition. But buying them in a box set, the special box that holds the books was just as important to me, especially because I was going to be giving it as a gift to my niece on her birthday. One corner was smashed, and the top later also peeled up on the same side. Big disappointment for me.
This set of 3 books weighs a TON. Well, 13.3 lb to be exact - I put them on the scale. Which means that each book weighs approx 4 pounds!!! Who wants to sit w/a 4 lb book on their lap? Not me, and certainly a young child. Needless to say, I'm returning this set.
I was so excited to get these and I am so disappointed. A ton of the illustrations are damaged from the pages being stuck together. So far, I have 8 damaged illustrations and I am only on chapter 6 of the Sorcerers Stone.
Just like others have said, there's a good chance you'll get these and they'll be pretty beat up. There was no packing material, just a box, so they got to us pretty munched up. Thankfully the books weren't too affected, but if you care more about the box than I do, you'll be pretty disappointed.
