Book Jacket Summary
Give a kid a classic! Cozy Classics is a new board book series that presents well-loved stories to children aged 0+ through twelve child-friendly words and twelve needle-felted illustrations.
Moby Dick is a high seas adventure about one man's quest to find the whale that took his leg, and one of the world's most beloved classics. Now this classic can be shared with children of any age.

My Thoughts
What a cute idea for a series but it is not really a kids book. It is more of an adult book dressed in kids book clothing but that is okay. I think that this idea is adorable and is packaged very well. There are twelve words and twelve needle-felted illustration or rather pictures. It is all very clever with words like sailor with a sailor standing on the first first page of Moby Dick with the quote Call me Ishmael. It is a great call back to the book and it gets cuter with a felted whale on a map of the sea. I really like this series and cannot wait to take a look at the Pride and Prejudice one!
