We remember how influential, entertaining, and comforting books were when we were kids. Characters like the March sisters and Anne Shirley have been dependable friends and heroes for generations of readers. The Puffin in Bloom collection, an assortment of classic novels with coming-of-age themes aimed at adolescents, is a great representation of this. Each beautifully bound hardcover volume features cover illustrations by Anna Bond of the famed Rifle Paper Co., and inside the pages of 2 of the 4 books (Heidi and A Little Princess) are the original black and white illustrations. All of the books include the full unabridged texts as originally published. This set is the perfect gift for a young bookworm, and will be something they cherish forever.
