The 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice  by Jane Austen continues with a new bright and shiny thing. Cozy Classics came out with a

board book version of the classic, adopted by Jack and Holman Wang. They retell the story in a dozen words. I really didn’t think you could tell this complex a story in a handful of words, but paired with the created felt doll scenes, it really does. In fact they have convinced me that it really would make a good writing exercise to get the essence of a classic story in that few words. Each of these words is paired with an image created by cloth dolls arranged to tell part of the story. You really wouldn’t be able to deduce the entire story from the photos, but  you can get the general idea. If you know the story you could easily share it using this book and it would be a great book to use if you wanted to practice prediction with a child you were reading it with. (What question did he ask her? What is he writing?) Anyone who loves Pride and Prejudice will want a copy of this version just for the images. The photos are exquisite.  They would be 100% frameworthy. I’m actually considering getting a second copy just to cut it up and frame it. They’re gorgeous. Check out their website including a trailer and information about this book and the rest of their Cozy Classic series.

Oh, and I found this existed through a Facebook posting, but it took me long enough to get a copy that I don’t remember who did. I really appreciate and if anyone wants to claim credit please do.
