Well I received the Pocket Roverandom yesterday, and I'm happy enough with it. Nice cover and the paper is reasonably non toilet-paperish.

I have to say, though, I think the "novelty" pocket format is basically too small. I would have MUCH preferred an edition that matched the recent "Mr Bliss" and "Letters from Father Christmas". Those books are far easier to hold and read.

You can see the covers in what should be final colour's on my previous post, but I have re-posted them as well.

Very nice set. I have directly cancelled my pre-order at amazon for the separate books, and ordered the box.
Perhaps bookpeople will have the separate books also with dj.

I must say that is one of the nicest boxed sets (incoporating the book spines as well) that I have ever seen for Tolkien's major works. Many kudos to the design team that put this together!
