Moby Dick

Read To Me, a new series on Open Book, showcases those magical children’s books that kids will ask you to read many times and that you’ll love reading. Today, we’re featuring Jack Wang and Holman Wang's Pride and Prejudice and Moby Dick (Simply Read Books), part of their Cozy Classics series.

ABOUT THE BOOKS: The Wang brothers' Cozy Classic board books present a classic work of literature in just 12 words accompanied by charming needle-felted illustrations. The Wangs beautifully capture the stories of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Herman Melville's Moby-Dick with their simple words and beautifully crafted art work. For ages 0+.

WHY KIDS WILL LOVE IT: Toddlers will have fun looking at the felted people and creature (the whale), and beginning readers will enjoy working their way through the text.

WHY GROWN UPS WILL LOVE IT: Parents will be amazed at how beautifully their favourite books are captured in these short board books, both in text and illustration. Bonus: grown ups get to fill out the stories for the young readers.


Buy this book at your local independent bookstore or online at Chapters/Indigo or Amazon.
