Cozy Classics: Pride and Prejudice, by Jack Wang and Holman Wang (based on the book by Jane Austen)

Cozy Classics: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice
Authors: Jack Wang and Holman Wang
Based on the book by Jane Austen 
Publisher: Simply Read Books 
Publication Date: November 15, 2012 
Let's just get this out of the way right off the bat. Some of you are huge Jane Austen fans. You know who you are. Of course you do, you're not ashamed of it. There are millions of you. And among you Jane Austen fans, many of you have a child in your life. Maybe it's not your own child, but a niece or a nephew, a friend's baby, a neighbourhood kid who waves at you on the way to work. Whatever. The point is, you will buy them this book. It's just a scientific fact. There's no way around it, really. It's freaking adorable, for one thing. Look at that felt doll on the cover! She has mud on her skirt and everything! You'd be crazy to think you can resist the charm of that. It's like weapons-grade cute right there.

Now parents: be prepared. If you have a friend or a relative or a chatty co-worker who loves Jane Austen, even ironically (whatever that means), you will most likely be receiving this book at some point. Don't be alarmed. It's cute and harmless...although I will admit that it's a little disconcerting to see a felt doll with cleavage.

Hit the jump for Magda's Take and more pictures from the book!

Magda's Take:
"What does she have on her dress? Is that mud? She should put that in the laundry. Maybe that's why she's running."
