Anybody got any good recommendations for nicely illustrated version of the Wizard of Oz? I'd love to read it to DD, but all the illustrated versions I have seen are abridged, which is not what I want.
I'd also love to hear any recommendations for other well illustrated children's classics. I love hardback books with beautiful colour plates, and my DD tends to switch off if there aren't a few nice pictures to look at. Would love to find a couple of good quality books to wrap up for Christmas.
Thank you so much. And nipersvest, thanks for thinking of the Folio Society. I had forgotten all about them. They have the most gorgeous books - and I have just seen they have all of Andrew Lang's Fairy Books, which I have been hunting for!
There's a nice colourful hardback one here and as you say, beautifully illustrated children's classics such as The Secret Garden, A Christmas Carol, Wind in the Willows etc. I've looked at The Secret Garden in Waterstones and it's the full version so others might be too.
