Oliver Twist

Oliver Twist by Jack and Holman Wang
Published by Cozy Classics
5th December 2013
Board Book Edition
Cozy Classics is the popular board book series that distils great works of literature into 12 child-friendly words. Accompanied by 12 stunning images of needle-felted characters, the cuteness and visual simplicity of the felted illustrations will appeal to children, while their craftsmanship will appeal to adults. Oliver Twist is Charles Dickens' high-spirited adventure about one boy's journey through the underworld of London and is one of Dickens' most famous tales.
The Cozy Classics books are back with some new titles for the new year.  This time it's with the classic Dickens novel Oliver Twist.  The format is the same, twelve words followed by twelve gorgeous felted images.  Want to see some of them?
Please sir, can I have some more?
Meeting Fagin
I have to say, I think these books are fantastic and a great way to get very young children interested and understand some great classic fiction.  Both of my girls, who are 5 and 7 love these books and because there is no actual text, they generate lots of conversation about what can be seen in the images, but also about what we think each word might be referring to before looking at the illustration, for example 'more'.
I can't wait for the next Cozy Classic!
Happy Reading
