    Twins Jack and Holman Wang, from British Columbia, have hit upon a new and fun way to bring the classics to small children. I picked this up while at Chapters because of the cover - I didn't know whether to laugh or not, but the fact that it's pretty funny (the concept and execution) to adults probably helps make it fun to read over and over again, because believe me, the kids LOVE this book! Each double-page spread features a photo illustration on one side - all made out of felt and model sets b Twins Jack and Holman Wang, from British Columbia, have hit upon a new and fun way to bring the classics to small children. I picked this up while at Chapters because of the cover - I didn't know whether to laugh or not, but the fact that it's pretty funny (the concept and execution) to adults probably helps make it fun to read over and over again, because believe me, the kids LOVE this book! Each double-page spread features a photo illustration on one side - all made out of felt and model sets but photographed so that it looks life-sized - and a word on the opposite page. They have reduced the story of Pride and Prejudice to the following words: friends, sisters, dance, mean, sick, muddy, yes?, no!, write, read, walk, marry. Not a bad way of summing up the story, is it? Rather than just intone a word per page, I turn it back into a story. I'll say the word, and then put it in a sentence using the characters' real names and make silly comments (it's really hard not to, it's just so funny!). For some reason, the kids really enjoy this book, and my boy in particular makes funny little grunting laughs at each page. They also like jumping in with the word they know is coming next - well, so far the only word in the book that they can say with confidence is the "No!" but they have a lot of fun saying it before I've even turned the page! (As an aside, this caught my eye mostly because the felt figures reminded me of that hilarious yet disturbing knitting porn from, ah, France or somewhere, where the actors are wearing full-body knitted suits, it's really weird and bizarre and I rather wish my sister hadn't sent me the link! Which thankfully I've lost so I won't be sharing it! But it's not what you want to be thinking of when you read a children's book, is it.) Other books in the series so far include Moby-Dick, Les Miserables and War and Peace.

    The nuances of Pride and Prejudice suffer from this brief summation of the novel. The illustrations are bright, charming and well intentioned but I fear that they do not help explain the plot. It seems like two homosexual males are forced by societal pressures to find wives to marry. The brown haired sister is abused by one of them and rightfully refuses his offer at marriage. Her sister sadly just get sick and apparently recovers in time to get caught up in the farce.

The book seems to be dominated by a male point of view and seems obsessed with the idea that ones ultimate goal is marriage. Even if one cannot accomplish this with someone you actually love.

    Reader, I bought it. Okay, I've gotten a reminder that Austen doesn't call her readers Reader. Now I don't have anything to say about this book, except that Heathcliff's frown on a felted figurine is quite affective. Just kidding. I know it's not Heathcliff; it's Darcy. Reader, I bought it.

    So, so cute! I love this beautiful board book. 12 words, 12 beautiful illustrations. My daughter hasn't quite reached the point of just looking at the book, she mostly chews on it (she is 7 months old;), but I know she will love the illustrations when she is older! And I'm excited that she owns her first Jane Austen book! So, so cute! I love this beautiful board book. 12 words, 12 beautiful illustrations.

    Awesome idea, and a must-have for Austen-fans, I think. :D I guess you could read it with your toddler, too, giving you the opportunity to tell them the story while looking at the adorable pictures, but it wouldn't make sense if you don't know the story really well. For me, it's the brilliance of the idea: twelve moments from the story, summarised in one word each and illustrated with needle-felted dolls, shot in wonderful photos - and there you are, the whole of Pride and Prejudice lovingly tol Awesome idea, and a must-have for Austen-fans, I think. :D I guess you could read it with your toddler, too, giving you the opportunity to tell them the story while looking at the adorable pictures, but it wouldn't make sense if you don't know the story really well.

    I love these books. Even though they're for babies, I can appreciate them for an adult. The characters are made completely out of felt and put into situations to fit with the book. It's simple but pretty. I love these books. Even though they're for babies, I can appreciate them for an adult.

    Jane Austen’s tale of love, friendship, and family is now within the grasp of the youngest members of society. Pride and Prejudice is told as never before through needle-felted characters and twelve easy words that will capture its audience’s interest. This book is perfect to take hold of yet another generation of possible Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth fans. Jack and Holman Wang’s interpretation of this timeless classic is fodder for the imagination as the lack of sentences and word-covered pages allow Jane Austen’s tale of love, friendship, and family is now within the grasp of the youngest members of society.

This book is perfect to take hold of yet another generation of possible Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth fans. Jack and Holman Wang’s interpretation of this timeless classic is fodder for the imagination as the lack of sentences and word-covered pages allows one to tell the story with his/her own words. This book holds a lot of potential because not only can the child start out by hearing it told, but eventually can also develop his/her own storytelling skills. Pride and Prejudice captivated me the first time I read it and has been my favorite novel ever since, so when I came across this board book, I just had to review it. I’m so glad I did. I may be way out of its intended age-range (0-3 year olds), but that didn’t keep me from thoroughly enjoying it and becoming engrossed with the images and its ageless plot. Reading it felt like discovering Pride and Prejudice all over again. This is a must have for future fiction addicts (and the adults who will undoubtedly glance over their shoulders).

    PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is one of my favorite novels EVER, so I definitely need to own COZY CLASSICS: PRIDE AND PREJUDICE!!! Told through twelve child friendly words and twelve beautiful illustrations, the book conveys the essence of the story in such a manner that is very conducive to early readers of board books. I definitely would love to own all of the Cozy Classics, and I've been totally inspired to reread Pride and Prejudice again, after seeing these adorable little felt dolls acting it out thr PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is one of my favorite novels EVER, so I definitely need to own COZY CLASSICS: PRIDE AND PREJUDICE!!!

    New outlook for classic stories. This is the kind of book that only encourages imagination. The book has only 12 words, that you or your kid can use as a base point for retelling the tale yourself. Original plush illustrations transform the story into a kind of movie. I love when the books for kids are made in such a unique way. They let you be creative.

    A beautifully made book, the only page that was missing was "SURPRISE" (Elizabeth seeing Mr. Darcy come out of the water). If you collect Pride & Prejudice this is a must for your collection! If you have babies, this is a must for your library. A beautifully made book, the only page that was missing was "SURPRISE" (Elizabeth seeing Mr. Darcy come out of the water).

    Absolutely adorable! Slightly annoyed that the adorable felted Mr. Darcy was modeled after Matthew McFadyen and not the awesome Colin Firth, but not enough to deter the enjoyment that there is a P&P board book! In the public library for all the little future Janeites!!How wonderful!

    I think the best part of this book is that if you know the story, you can totally follow it, even though it's only 1 word per page. I think the best part of this book is that if you know the story, you can totally follow it, even though it's only 1 word per page.

    I’m giving this 4 stars simply because of the absolutely adorable felt illustrations. And because I love Pride and Prejudice and all things Jane Austen. I appreciate the efforts to create a book which introduces children to my favorite book, but I fear the single words are far too ambiguous and would confuse children. Perhaps this is perfect for the Austen mega-fan parent reading to an infant, to give said parent something to geek over while reading to a child who cannot fully comprehend a story I’m giving this 4 stars simply because of the absolutely adorable felt illustrations.

Perhaps this is perfect for the Austen mega-fan parent reading to an infant, to give said parent something to geek over while reading to a child who cannot fully comprehend a story anyway and would simply enjoy the illustrations and bonding from storytime. But for toddlers, I feel parents would need to explain more of the story after reading the single word on each left-hand page. (For example, explaining how Elizabeth goes from rejecting Mr. Darcy’s proposal to suddenly marrying him by the end of the book.)

    This book is a cute way to introduce babies and toddlers to one of the greatest classics ever - "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen. In fact, it is such a clever idea, I am willing to overlook the fact that it was clearly influenced by the 2005 Hollywood version of "Pride and Prejudice." The pages are filled with illustrations that closely resemble the actors from the aforementioned movie version of P&P.

Buy a copy for your favorite wee one and get him or her started on reading the classics. I would have rated this book 3 1/2 stars if Goodreads permitted it.

    Intended to bring the classics to children, this is a board book with 12 words. Knowing the story, I can follow along but I disagree with the idea of it bringing the classics to kids. But, I've never liked the dumbing down of stories to appeal to lower reading levels. I did enjoy the Darcy page with the word mean. Well, played!

    They were serious about a "12-word book." Each page was one word, which you would imagine would be difficult for these classics. The illustrations (photographs with cute, felt characters) spoke volumes. I'm very impressed with this boardbook. Not sure how well people entirely unfamiliar with the plot would be able to follow, but an easy way to familiarize yourself with the story. :) They were serious about a "12-word book."

    3/7/19 - I haven't put in a review for this, yet? I got it at PLA I believe. Possibly ALA. A board book of P&P? Yes! I have a few now, but I especially love this one. Simplified but awesome. Just read to V. and she looked at the pics well. 3/7/19 - I haven't put in a review for this, yet? I got it at PLA I believe. Possibly ALA. A board book of P&P? Yes!

    10/10, would read again. I laughed. The fastest way to tell this story, ever. Let's not even mention Darcy's crazy ass aunt. 10/10, would read again. I laughed. The fastest way to tell this story, ever. Let's not even mention Darcy's crazy ass aunt.
