Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality, but missing quite a few illustrations I bought this book thinking, great! All the Little Polar Bear stories in one book, for a fraction of the price it would be to buy them all individually. Unfortunately, several of the original illustrations (per story) have been cut out of this hardcover compilation. I owned some Little Polar Bear stories when i was young, and as soon as i received the hardcover, i noticed that quite a few of the illustrations from those stories are missing in the hardcover. It looks like they tried to save money by combining two pages of text onto 1 page with only 1 corresponding original illustration, instead if 2 or 3 (therefore cutting down on the total number of pages). There's nothing wrong with the quality of this hardcover; the pages are nice and thick and the illustrations that ARE included are great. I wish I could give this book 5 stars; I was just very disappointed to find many illustrations completely missing. As such, I plan to purchase the original individual story books that contain the full collection of illustrations.
