    1. The best adaptation of Les Mis I've ever read.Subsequently, the only adaptation of Les Mis I've ever completed;-)

    2. The felt characters are beautiful. This book's words are vague and clearly intended to snare parents not for babies or even young children to enjoy--Strange.

    3. 3 STARSThis is a nice picture book. Very few words but lots of pictures that tell the story. Very simply told. Good for babies and toddlers who like picture books. It would also help if adults had read the book and can explain more about the pictures.I was given this ebook for free and asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley. publication: May 30th 2013 by Simply Read Books 24 pages ISBN: 1927018218Description below taken off of Netgalley.Give a kid a classic! Cozy Classics is the popular [...]

    4. This is a story I know well and being obsessed with the musical, I've even read the novel or skimmed it anyway The 14 words here just aren't enough to tell the story. It misses why Valjean and young Cosette "climb" and "run" because it just shows Valjean as "poor" and then "rich." The word choice for the battle between students and soldiers is "fire." Why not fight? The illustrations are photographs of needle-felted props. They are amazing, though a little dark for a children's book. The first p [...]

    5. Bueno pensareis que debe ser una monería Y eso mismo es lo que pensé yo cuando leí de qué se trataba el librito así que necesitaba verlo esta clase de libros me parecen una gran idea Seamos sinceros ¿qué mejor manera de enseñarle a tus pequeños un gran clásico? Yo me imagino a mí misma, con el libro en las manos mi niñita y contándole por encima la preciosa historia de "Los Miserables" a través de las 12 palabras que creo que recogen perfectamente la esencia de esta bella historia. [...]

    6. Cozy classics indeed! In this well-designed board book, young readers are introduced to Victor Hugo's Les Miserables and its rag to riches story. Although it's impossible to capture the complexity of that masterpiece with all of its drama, romance, and political intrigue set against the backdrop of revolution, this book does a good job of identifying 12 words that are significant to the story and then crafting 12 different scenes with felt that enable readers to have a handle on what the heart o [...]

    7. Cozy Classics: Les Miserables by Jack Wang & Holman Wang is a beautiful children's board book that tells a classic tale in a very simplified way.I think it would be best if the parent is aware of the general story line of the actual classic novel. This way, if the child has any questions or just wants to know more, then the parent can answer them.The thing that drew me in the most was the BEAUTIFUL felt creations. The imagery is amazing. I enjoyed reading this book with my daughter. She is l [...]

    8. There once was a man who committed a crime, served his time, and spent the rest of his life trying to make up for it, always being hounded by the law, despite his continued efforts to be a good man and a good father.I'm really getting into this series. The illustration style using photographed felt characters is unique and interesting, and the descriptive images coupled with the very little text tell the story while still using vocabulary that's actually fitting for a board book. It was fun to s [...]

    9. I received an advanced copy of this book through NetGalley.This is a relatively endearing and sweet rendition of the classic. While obviously much is pared down to accommodate for the length and the audience, Wang still does an effective job at making an accessible read for children. This book is ideal for parents who might want to introduce their children to their own beloved stories before they are old enough to tackle the depth and intensity of the original or its many adaptations.What wins t [...]

    10. It loses something in the translation.This very loose interpretation of Victor Hugo's classic Les Miserables suffers from the adaptation of the original work. If you didn't know that the character in the first illustrations are the same person then you might interpret the whole work differently. Jean ValJean is poor. And then he's rich? No. That's not quite right. And how do we know that the happy girl is the daughter of the sad lady? And where is the greedy innkeeper?AND HOW DO WE GLOSS OVER TH [...]

    11. 3.5 stars, just for the clever use of emotions.Found a bunch of these books at the local bookstore and had a few chuckles reading them in all of two minutes flat. These make great baby gifts and think about it, what parent wouldn't want to boast that they read Les Miserables to their infant? The book is illustrated with lovely little felt people and each page has one word describing the emotion of the story. Really cute.

    12. This is just amazing. Ive just read this book in the digital version and i couldnt believe my eyes. They managed to make such an intense and long book into a 13 pages childrens book with only one word every other page. The characters are made with felt and on the opposite page you will find one word: love, together, dark, etc. Its the best way to start kinder children in the love for classics.

    13. I love this unique take on children's picture books.The felted dolls are absolutely adorable and so expressive. There are few words to the books but each page tells its tale beautifully. New readers will be able to understand the words and young children will enjoy looking at the dolls and the extra details.

    14. 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.

    15. This is a nice picture book. Very few words but lots of pictures that tell the story. Very simply told. Good for babies and toddlers who like picture books. It would also help if adults had read the book and can explain more about the pictures.

    16. The brothers Wang have done it again! Gorgeously illustrated, inspired word choices, and beautifully packaged. If you have a little one in your life to buy for, Cozy Classics are an absolutely failsafe choice.

    17. Once again, the Cozy Classics pull through with an adorable board book that will win your toddler's heart. A great introduction to early language and the Classics.

    18. simple & sweet little book of words with their description clearly shown with super cute felt dolls** thanks to NetGalley & the publishers for this copy!

    19. This is a much shorter version than what a co-worker battled through last year. LOL. I just watched the movie, so I had to page through this version. I'm not surprised that they left out Fantine.

    20. Not really a "read" but a really cute distillation of the book. So many of these are poorly done, but not this series.

    21. As with all books in this series retelling classic stories for toddlers, each page has one world illustrated by a felt doll. This book was our favorite because every time we got to the page with the threadbare man (Javert maybe?) for the word "poor," our toddler said "daddy" with absolute certainty.
