    I saw this at the local bookstore and it took me about 3 minutes to read. If you have a new baby or toddler or know someone that does, why not introduce that child to the classics right away? The books are illustrated with lovely felt people and each page has a word or emotion that is conveyed by the book following the lengthy story line of the original. Hey, why not purchase these for yourself and you can say that you've read Moby Dick in less than 3 minutes?

    A very enjoyable and short interpretation of Herman Melville's classic Moby Dick. The plot is concisely illustrated in adorable felt figures. It even begins with "Call me Ishmael." The boat is a majestic vessel and although Captain Ahab receives focus for a large part of the book, I wonder if younger readers will not understand what has happened with the Captain's leg.

    This board book tells the story of Moby Dick in 12 simple words with photos made up of needle-felted props. Someone has fun with this series!

I love Captain Ahab and his leg, Moby Dick and the incredible staging on this book. My infant nephew had no opinion on the story. He just wanted to chew on the book. His mother and big sister really liked the pictures and big sister thought the one word/page text looked easy enough for her to try to read to her baby brother.

    The Pequod leaves Nantucket on Christmas Day for the Pacific, and along its journey, the narrator introduces the reader to quite a few of the ship’s members. Starbuck is the chief mate, Stubb, the second mate, and Flask, the third. There are also three harpooners: Queequeg, Tashtego, and Daggoo. The narrator not only describes the crew but also provides a lot of information about sperm whales and how they are spotted and hunted.

    The illustrations truly make the “Cozy Classics” something special. The felted illustrations in Moby Dick were well executed. I would say this book could’ve used a couple more pages. I don’t feel it captured the essence and angst of Moby Dick. Definitely not for a younger audience as it has some scary themes.

    Young readers will enjoy this brief rendition of the timeless novel. It drew in baby's attention with the word "sailor" which brought out a huge smile. Must have read the original in a previous life perhaps?

    Haven’t actually read Moby Dick so it was interesting to read it in this format. Very sparse and bleak but I love the little felt characters. Also, just introducing children to great literature is pretty cool.

    I love how Cozy Classics tries to sum up very dense, complicated reading into single words. If you don't already know what these classics are about then I wonder if people would be confused.

    I love the concept of one word with a picture. And the photos are super cute!

    Concept/classic, published in 2016 This is a cute little summarization of a classic story that would be awesome for a child to read and then later connect to their future reading when they read the real Moby Dick in the future! These are great for very young kids because there is only one word per page.

    I previously read the Cozy Classic version of Pride and Prejudice and was impressed – I fell in love with the totally adorable photos of the needle-felted characters and scenes.

Familiarity with the original story does help a lot but at the same time, this book does help in introducing these classics and instill a love of literature in the young. Adults can retell the story any which way, many different ways, or the very same way each time they open the book. My favorite illustration here is of the ship and my favorite word – crash! There are two more Cozy Classics (Les Miserables and War and Peace) coming out this year and I am looking forward to these. These are great gifts for adults who love classics and definitely for parents of infants and toddlers who are looking for great books to share with their young ones. A 3D experience without the need for glasses:) The website includes some more information for each book – a cozy version of the book if you need some help with relating the story, cast information, quotes from the book, as well as tips for parents to tell the story. Cozy Classics brings a wonderful new dimension to board books. Rating: A Reading Level: 0+ Reread Level: 5/5 (I am sure the little ones will be rereading this book many times over) Disclaimer: I had the digital ARC from NetGalley and received the actual board book from Jack and Holman Wang (thank you for this delightful addition to my library). There was no requirement to review or to provide a favorable one. This review is my honest opinion of the book. I just happen to love this book!

    Okay, first of all, the felted objects and photography in the Wangs' retelling of Moby Dick -- I read the digital version, but IRL it's a board book for babies -- are PERFECT.

Cozy Classics: Moby Dick uses twelve photographs, and pairs up a single word with each photograph. It can be confusing if you haven't read the classic text; I've never read Melville's version and have only a passing familiarity with the original tale. I could gather the gist of it by reading this board book, but who knows how accurate I was. I do think the book, as a whole, could have benefited from having a unified theme in the words instead of trying to follow the original storyline; my 18-month-old could understand "boat" but there's a picture of an (ADORABLE) angry Ahab -- at least, that's who I think it is based on my sad half-knowledge -- that's been paired with the word "mad," which is a concept she really doesn't get yet. And "floating" didn't stand a chance. If all the words had been objects, it would have been smooth sailing (har har), but the mix of objects and emotions and action words (like "sail" and "find") is a little harder for her to grasp. That wouldn't stop me from picking up a copy of this book, though. I'd probably just change the words as I read it, to something more concrete for the little ones. It'd be worth it. The felting! The photography! AAAH SO CUTE. (three-and-half stars)

    Taken as an amusement for adults, this book is actually quite a hoot. The idea of simplifying classics to a baby-appropriate level is a bit ridiculous, no a lot ridiculous (um, they usually have completely different interests). The illustrations are photographs of finely crafted felted figures and are pretty excellent in quality but the color palette is so limited and the value of the shades is so minimal that it's not going to be appealing or even distinguishable to babies.

The illustrations are photographs of finely crafted felted figures and are pretty excellent in quality but the color palette is so limited and the value of the shades is so minimal that it's not going to be appealing or even distinguishable to babies. The text is well chosen given the original tale, but like most baby board books will be read as a miscellany of various objects- even the actions may be a bit obscure when you think about the difficulty of illustrating verbs, especially for babes who are just beginning to understand 2D images. On the other hand, there's certainly something to be said for adults sharing books with children that they are excited about. This one will definitely ask adults to revisit Moby Dick from an interesting perspective creating an enjoyable reading experience. Anyway, adult-oriented books haven't been shown to hurt kids in the least- Robert Munsch's Love You Forever even remains a perennial favorite primarily because of the emotional bonds formed in the reading of the adult-perspective text.

    As an English teacher, I love reading classic literature, so when I discovered the Cozy Classics series, I was thrilled. These books are designed for infants and toddlers and summarize lengthy works such as Moby Dick, Pride and Prejudice, and Les Miserables with a few simple words. The best part, however, is the art. Each series of pages features a felted character or image as the illustration, giving the book an almost 3-D feel, and making each page enticing.

The rich colors and unique take on the classics is absolutely perfect for a little one. The Cozy Classics version of Moby Dick is precious. It has Ishmael, Ahab, and of course, the white whale, but this is a book that is as amusing for children as it is for adults. For example, one of the images is of Ahab's wooden prosthetic, and the word on the facing page simply says "Leg". This honestly could even be fun in a middle school or high school classroom as an introductory or review activity. Obviously there are parts that are left out of the story, but as a baby's first abridged version, this is a must, and I can't wait to see which other classics authors Jack and Holman Wang decide to tackle.

I'd love to buy copies of this and all of the other Cozy Classics for my little nephew, who already adores books!

    There's this unattached sailor and there's this obsessed peg-legged captain and there's this demonic whale... Vocabulary ensues. This is one of my favorite of the Cozy Classics series so far! I love how much of the story the author/illustrator is able to tell with just a few key vocabulary words and felt-character photographs. This one has a lot of drama, and a lot of pretty stunning water/sea foam effects, and I always like when he works actual pages from the book into the photos.

    In twelve words, the adventure of Ishmael is introduced to very young audiences. This is a great way to extend a child’s reading progress beyond basic/Dolch words. The fact that each word represents a pivotal moment in the story serves to encourage great interaction between parent and child: Dad can tell a (very) abridged version of the story while highlighting the key words (and moments) in the book.

    12 words and 12 felt illustrations simplify the story of Moby Dick in this board book. This leaves plenty of time for telling the story with the preschooler cuddled on the lap. The opening page simply has the word “sailor” with felt art of a sailor standing on the opening page of the book and the words, “Call me Ishmael.” Children will come to recognize the simple words on the pages such as boat, leg, mad, sail, whale, etc. and the great part is that they are also being introduced to one of the 12 words and 12 felt illustrations simplify the story of Moby Dick in this board book.

    This extremely simplified retelling of Moby Dick (12 words) introduces the characters - sailor, the setting - boat, and the plot - mad, and then shows, through felt dolls and scenes, the basic tale of the whale hunt. This is a great deal of fun. I’m not sure that a board book age child would be interested in the story, but the pictures are great. I can see a teacher using this in an art or a literature class - can you tell the story in 12 words?

    The best part about this book is the pictures--in fact, I think they could have done away with the words and used it as a wordless book. As a child, I loved books with pictures using toys or 3D characters--they spark the imagination and encourage creativity and play. The felted figurines in this book are captivating to look at, I really think the book would be improved without the words. I'd love to see the other books in this series.

    Is reading this the equivalent experience as tackling Melville's novel? Absolutely not. Is this board book a sweet tribute to a cultural juggernaut? Absolutely. I couldn't help but smile at the picture/word associations, and while there is no way the adorable felted characters and objects do much more than give a sense of the sea-bound novel, it is still a goofy and fun read that I hope to share with my niece.

    This series is not the most eloquent introduction to literary classics for children. But the felt dolls, their expressions, and the authors one word of choice per page spread, are certainly humorous from an adult perspective. Each one of these makes me laugh! And anything that makes me laugh, is worthwhile to me.

    New outlook for classic stories. This is the kind of book that only encourages imagination. The book has only 12 words, that you or your kid can use as a base point for retelling the tale yourself. Original plush illustrations transform the story into a kind of movie. I love when the books for kids are made in such a unique way. They let you be creative.
