About this product
- DescriptionThe Cozy Classics series stages handcrafted felt puppets in scenes from classic literature and illustrates the plots of canical texts using twelve total words per book, one word per scene, in a way that accurately and humorously summarises each book's plot. It's Great Books for toddlers and their parents--a little bit serious, a little bit ironic, and entirely funny and clever. This title expertly adapts 'the greatest book of the sea ever written,' that epic tale of man vs. whale: Moby-Dick.
- Author BiographyJack and Holman Wang are twin brothers who grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia. They first began writing and illustrating books together in the third grade. Jack earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in creative writing from the University of Arizona and a Ph.D. in English with an emphasis in creative writing from Florida State University, where his major area was the history of the novel. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Writing at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York, where he specialises in fiction writing and serves as Chair. Holman, an artist and former middle school teacher, holds a bachelor's degree in education and a master's degree in architecture history, both from the University of British Columbia. He is the author of Bathroom Stuff, a nonfiction coffee table book on the history of everything in your bathroom, published by SourceBooks in 2001. His work has been featured in newspapers and on TV and radio, including NPR and the CBC. Jack has four and two year-old daughters. Holman has a three year-old daughter and a 21 month-old son. They both love reading to their children, and they're both eager to pass on the classics.
