‘Cozy Classics,’ by Jack and Holman Wang.

It’s never too early to introduce your children to some of the classics of Western literature. This awesome series of books will let you do just that.

The Cozy Classics series is the brainchild of the Wang brothers who were looking for a way to teach their young children new words. They came up with this ingenious series which manages to capture the spirit of the story in only twelve words!

The board pages and simple words make these perfect for little readers. They’re also perfect to get older readers thinking about themes within stories in a fun way.

I was totally blown away by the gorgeous needle-felted scenes depicting key moments from the plots. These were crafted by the Wang brothers themselves (who are also the creators of the Star Wars Epic Yarns board books.)

Other titles are available, including: Great Expectations, Pride and Prejudice, Moby Dick, War and Peace, The Nutcracker, Les Miserables, Emma and Huckleberry Finn. Phew! What a list!

A beautiful gift for littlies or for a grown-up fan who appreciates truly gorgeous and original books. Definitely not just for kids!
