    Cozy Classics takes adult classics and abridges them into word primers. Each of the 12 single words is paired with a full-color photo of charming felt figures and details depicting a scene from the book. storm - oops - yellow - silly - stuck - scared - green - wizard - witch - water - wish - home Dorothy, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodsman are so wonderfully rendered in this book; they're beyond cute! Perfect for introducing words, books and beloved classics to very young children.

    This is a delightful adaptation of the classic book. I like that the first page of the real book is in the background of the first scene. Further talks about the story could accompany the reading of this board book. Terrific!

    It is perhaps no secret that I quite adore the needle-felted Cozy Classics and Star Wars: Epic Yarns from Canadian authors Jack and Holman Wang! I have featured the brothers' adorable, thoughtful and awe-inspiring work here a few times; now I have another wonderful new one to talk about! In their take on L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Jack and Holman use twelve words- everything from 'storm' to 'home'- to tell a version of this classic tale .

I have featured the brothers' adorable, thoughtful and awe-inspiring work here a few times; now I have another wonderful new one to talk about! In their take on L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Jack and Holman use twelve words- everything from 'storm' to 'home'- to tell a version of this classic tale . As with other Cozy Classics titles, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz features, per page spread, one highlighted word with an incredibly detailed needle-felted scene on the facing page. As you can see from a few of the photos I took, the Wang brothers are nothing if not painstaking in their care and attention to detail- in both selection of the ten words and in how they bring specific (and some famous!) characters and scenes to life. As someone who has had the great honour to meet Holman in person and see some needle-felt characters up close, I can speak to their utter artistry. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz seems another very tricky title to pull off as a Cozy Classic, as we might often think not only the classic novel but also of the iconic Judy Garland film as a comparison! How can Cozy Classics faithfully represent Dorothy, Toto...the Emerald City? What about the Wicked Witch of the West? As a child who both strangely adored and was terrified of The Wizard of Oz film, I wondered how Jack and Holman would adapt this story- without making it too scary for wee ones! I give full kudos to Jack and Holman for including some of the scarier aspects of the story (we do see felts and scenes with the Wicked Witch of the West and a winged monkey!); but those images are tempered by brighter felts of Dorothy, Toto, the yellow brick road, and other major characters like Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion. Overall, another fantastical creation from Jack and Holman Wang- I think any fans of Cozy Classics and L. Frank Baum's work might want to get their hands on this one! I've had the utter joy of sharing my home library collection of Cozy Classics (and Epic Yarns!) with my daughter, and they are ones that she has slowly grown into. Initially, the experience was all about the simple child-friendly words and looking at the pictures, but now the meaning of the words and stories have grown as she herself has grown! She actually discovered The Wonderful Wizard of Oz on my shelf before I had even perused it, so we sat down to explore the book together. Now, she sits down with it and chatters away, telling her own short version of the story as she turns the pages- and it is one of the best things I have ever seen. I received a copy of this title courtesy of Raincoast Books in exchange for an honest review. All opinions and comments are my own.

    This is lovely. It is inspired more by the movie than the book, which made it perfect for my nieces - they were able to tell the story on each page. Highly recommended. Quarantine 2020 book.

    This is the perfect book since so many kids will have watched the movie. Nice word choice.

    They were serious about a "12-word book." Each page was one word, which you would imagine would be difficult for these classics. The illustrations (photographs with cute, felt characters) spoke volumes. I'm very impressed with this boardbook. Not sure how well people entirely unfamiliar with the plot would be able to follow, but an easy way to familiarize yourself with the story. :)

    This is amazing! I had to look at this again! The talented people who made the felt figures are so good I love this book!

    The story begins with a tornado, here called a storm. The storm tossed Dorothy, her dog Toto, and their home into the air. When the house finally lands, it squashes an evil witch, killing her—oops! Dorothy is in the Land of Oz, but wants to return home. The good witch tells her to follow the yellow brick road. Parents who love the classics, and want to introduce their children while the children are young and open to many new things, will love this board book.

    Esta colección me encanta. Son libros clásicos contados con muñecos de fieltro y con una palabra "clave" en cada página. Mi favorita, "oops" y al lado la escena en la que aterriza la casa de Dorothy y mata a la bruja. 😆
