I would greatly appreciate Any information possible on this set. I believe it is UK based, but that is all I know. I don't know how many books there are and what the covers look like. Also any info as to where on might be able to get one on the aftermarket would help

Thanks
Bob

Bob, there were a total of 100 of these sets sold by the supermarket chain Tesco in Britain. There were five different covers included, where there were only four of them offered in a wider distribution. Each cover portrayed a character in the book. The "special" one showed a young boy. The set was shrink wrapped with a set of postcards of the characters.

I got mine off eBay back in 2010. I haven't really been looking, but I don't think they're very easily obtainable. Mine is still in the shrink wrap. Here's one of the covers:

And here's the promotional letter that was sent out with advance copies of the paperback (it shows another of the covers):
