I have never laughed so much at a board book! Authors who plainly have the best tongue-in-cheek sense of humor ever present 12 words and 12 needle-felted illustrations. This is the perfect book for those who enjoy "artisanal knots" and find Portlandia to be more of a documentary.

Publisher Comments:

Classics never go out of style—thats what makes them classic. Cozy Classics is a new board book series that presents well-loved stories to children aged 0+. Every classic in the series will be condensed to 12 baby-friendly words, and each word will appear alongside a photograph of needle felted objects. Moby Dick is a high seas adventure about one mans quest to find the whale who took his leg, and one of the worlds most beloved classics. Now this classic can be shared with your youngest children.

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 bachelor’s degree in education and a master’s 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.

WongKaiWen, December 23, 2012 (view all comments by WongKaiWen)
As an English teacher, I love reading classic literature, so when I discovered the Cozy Classics series, I was thrilled. These books are designed for infants and toddlers and summarize lengthy works such as Moby Dick, Pride and Prejudice, and Les Miserables with a few simple words. The best part, however, is the art. Each series of pages features a felted character or image as the illustration, giving the book an almost 3-D feel, and making each page enticing. The rich colors and unique take on the classics is absolutely perfect for a little one.
