War and Peace (Cozy Classics) Cover

 

Staff Pick

War and Peace for baby! Part of the second round of the Cozy Classics series, this book made me choke from laughing! One of the longest books in English literature? Don't care, 12 words — boom! And with accompanying felted dioramas! All of the Wang brothers' board books are HILARIOUS. See also: Moby Dick, Pride and Prejudice, Les Misérables, Oliver Twist, and Jane Eyre!

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.
