Review:

"Enchanting... Jack and Holman Wang have done a service to literate families everywhere with their Cozy Classics" The Wall Street Journal

Review:

“Remarkable." The Telegraph (UK)

Review:

"Quite simply, delightful." The Paris Review

Review:

"What is Cozy Classics, you might ask? Well, they are a series of board books that adapt classic literature for babies. And boy, are they cute. The books tell the stories of classics using just one word per page, with felt crafted characters. The authors and illustrators are twins Holman and Jack Wang. In the press release, Jack notes: 'We created Cozy Classics to revitalize the genre of the baby word books by injecting a sense of narrative and fun for the parent. In doing so, we hope to foster in children a lifelong love of reading and literature.' The books actually tell the novels fairly well (or those who have already read them). Holman states: 'Unlike Barney and Dora, Moby Dick's Ishmael and Pride and Prejudice's Elizabeth Bennett are characters that children will never outgrow.' We couldn't agree more." Huffington Post

About the Author

Jack and Holman Wang are twin brothers who grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia. They first began writing and illustrating books together in the third grade.

Jack earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in creative writing from the University of Arizona and a Ph.D. in English with an emphasis in creative writing from Florida State University, where his major area was the history of the novel. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Writing at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York, where he specializes in fiction writing.

Holman, an artist and former middle school teacher, holds a bachelors degree in education and a masters degree in architecture history, both from the University of British Columbia. He is the author of Bathroom Stuff, a nonfiction coffee table book on the history of everything in your bathroom, published by SourceBooks in 2001. His work has been featured in newspapers and on TV and radio, including NPR and the CBC.

Jack has three and one year-old daughters. Holman has a two year-old daughter and a six month-old son. They both love reading to their children, and they're both eager to pass on the classics.
