Literary critics see books in this series as important members of the Western canon, though many titles are translated or of non-Western origin; indeed, the series for decades from its creation included only translations, until it eventually incorporated the Penguin English Library imprint in 1986.

"All children, except one, grow up."

That's the famous first line of J. M. Barrie's novel Peter and Wendy, better known as Peter Pan. For a number of years Penguin Classics has been publishing so-called children's literature, giving each edition the full Penguin Classics treatment: engagingly written critical introductions, suggestions for further readings, and helpful explanatory notes. We do this not only because these books help define classic literature, but because they're great stories that live in the popular imagination, and like all great literature, they are a joy to reread, long after we've finished school, long after we've become grownups.

And so we happily urge you to rediscover--or to read for the first time--Alcott's Little Women (edited by the feminist critic and cultural commentator Elaine Showalter), Burnett's A Little Princess (rife with allusions to Thackeray and Dickens, notes editor U.C. Knoepflmacher) or The Secret Garden (which, as editor Alison Lurie observes, exhibits Brontëan influences), Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (a foundation text of anarchic children's literature, paired with Through the Looking-Glass by editor Hugh Haughton), Selected Tales of the Brothers Grimm (translated by the eminent David Luke), The Complete Fairy Tales of George MacDonald (a favorite of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, says editor Knoepflmacher), or Stevenson's rousing adventure stories including Treasure Island (edited by Penguin Classics consulting editor John Seelye--and without which, arguably, there would be no Pirates of the Caribbean).

You'll find many more such titles in the Children's Classics Library that will bring reading pleasure to your whole family. Included are 51 great titles:

I completely understand works like Milne's Winnie the Pooh, over which there are reprint rights issues, being omited. There is no reason for classic children's works like Montgomery's Anne (of Green Gable and Avonlea) to be missing from a "complete" collection when Penguin publishes them individually elsewhere.

And as a sidenote, Frankenstein was never intended as a children's book, but was Shelley's novelization of her ethics and philosophy works.
Fabulous idea, terrible execution. Contrary to what you might think, this is not an actual collection in the meaningful sense of the word. The books arrived disordered and poorly packed in a cardboard box, so that some were damaged in transit. It comes with no display box or case. Also, unlike the photo, the books were published under three different generations of Pengiun editions, with different sizes and colors. It's not a collection. It's just a pile of books with a discount.
Sure, this has some fine reading for the young ones to keep them away from that creepy Larry Porter bloke, but it's missing some greats. Where's Carl Barks' Donald Duck or Uncle Scrooge? Little Lulu? Calvin & Hobbes?

All words and no pics makes Jack a dull boy.
