Jane Austen’s tale of love, friendship, and family is now within the grasp of the youngest members of society. Pride and Prejudice is told as never before through needle-felted characters and twelve easy words that will capture its audience’s interest. This book is perfect to take hold of yet another generation of possible Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth fans.
Jack and Holman Wang’s interpretation of this timeless classic is fodder for the imagination as the lack of sentences and word-covered pages allows one to tell the story with his/her own words. This book holds a lot of potential because not only can the child start out by hearing it told, but eventually can also develop his/her own storytelling skills.
Pride and Prejudice captivated me the first time I read it and has been my favorite novel ever since, so when I came across this board book, I just had to review it. I’m so glad I did. I may be way out of its intended age-range (0-3 year olds), but that didn’t keep me from thoroughly enjoying it and becoming engrossed with the images and its ageless plot. Reading it felt like discovering Pride and Prejudice all over again. This is a must have for future fiction addicts (and the adults who will undoubtedly glance over their shoulders).
