Anyone read or have any of Puffin/Penguins Children's Classics?

I took a children's literature class last year at university and I read Treasure Island, Wind in the Willows, and Peter Pan.

i have several and love them. they have GREAT cover art and are a nice size. i'm working on collecting the majority of them to save for when i have kids. they have little kids reading guides in the back, which are cute.

yes, I like the added info at the back of the book and I love the art (except for Anne of Green Gables). Any favorites?

all of the Francis Hodgson Burnett covers, especially A Little Princess, are lovely and they are some of my favorite books (in any edition). The Wizard of Oz probably has my favorite cover art, but i don't own that one yet.
