Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice: Looking Better Than Ever

Pride and Prejudice is 200 years old and looking better than ever thanks to a beautiful new board book edition.

I may have mentioned once or twice how much I love the new Cozy Classics series created by Holman and Jack Wang (and published by Simply Read Books).


The Wang brothers are making it their business to introduce the toddler set to the classics of literature through simple 12 word elucidations of the tales accompanied by beautiful needle-felted illustrations.

To give you a sense of how well this works, here's a two page spread from their recently released Pride and Prejudice.







The books are garnering all kinds of attentions and I look forward to seeing the shelf of Cozy Classics grow.  Coming soon are Les Miserables and War and Peace and just announced are fall releases: Emma, Jane Eyre and Oliver Twist.  Check out Cozy Classics over on Facebook for details.  If you "like" their FB page this week you could be entered in a draw for six highly covetable posters!
