BOOKS FOR BITTIES: Cozy Classics’ Les Miserables
A few months ago, I had the privilege of reviewing Cozy Classics’ adorable adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, and absolutely loved it! So when the opportunity presented itself to check out another one of their classics-turned-board-books, I jumped at it.
Fans of Victor Hugo’s novel, Les Miserables, or the recent musical movie based on it are sure to love this sweet little board book that depicts the story from Jean Valjean’s poor beginnings (“poor” being the sole word on the first page) all the way to the final scene in which Valjean, Cosette, and Marius are all reunited together again (“together” being the word displayed on the final page).
Heads up… although the single-word pages and absolutely “awwwwwww”-inspiring feltwork are what makes this little book so quaint, without a prior knowledge of the story, it’d be difficult to understand how they go together.
