Review: Cozy Classics
Had I known what they were, I might not have reviewed them--I assumed an older-aged audience--but they represent not only the creativity of the Wangs pictured above, but they also call upon the creativity of the readers/storytellers. Each book has twelve images paired with one word to tell their (originally) epic stories. With only twelve words like "rich," "poor," and "sad," kids are called upon to fill in the blanks of what the story is. This may be this series' most admirable strength to pull in buyers.
As this image from the Vancouver Sun shows, other books in this series include Pride and Prejudice and Moby Dick.
