I got this collection for my niece who is in the first grade and just had her seventh birthday. She told me for Christmas that she wanted "lots of chapter books." I really had no idea what that meant because I did not know her reading level at that time. When I saw how many books she got for Christmas, I made sure to get her books for her birthday. I remembered reading Junie B. Jones when I was younger and I loved how the series was expanded so Junie was also in first grade. I originally was not going to get the first 27 books, I was thinking of giving her the first 10 books, but O.co had a good deal in my opinion. I don't know what others have paid, but essentially I paid $3 per book w/tax included, not including the box. When my niece opened up her present, she had a big grin on her face and told her mom that she got a "bajillion" books.

How did the image on site compare with the actual product? I thought th box would be bigger and in my memory the books were bigger. I wished there had been another picture showing the thin books inside the box or another item to see how big the package is.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate. The website told me the books were going to be paperbacks. I knew I was going to get paperback books. The only fault is that the product is listed as "Junie B. Jones's Complete Boxed Set" and it's not the website's fault, but there actually is another book that is not a part of this collection.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The covers of the books amazed me. I'm not usually distracted by shiny objects, but the books had a metallic sheen to them. I really liked that. However, I had a problem with the box. Within the first 30 minutes of opening the package, the box actually ripped.
After I listened to the first book, I bought the rest of the books on audio, although I had already read the books. I enjoyed listening to the book as I went about my cooking, cleaning, driving, washing ... The reader was very good. I loaned it to my daughter and some of her friends who also loved listening to Twilight saga on audio.
