The Cozy Classics series stages handcrafted felt puppets in scenes from classic literature and illustrates the plots of canical texts using twelve words total per book, one word per scene, in a way that accurately and humourously 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 Jane Austen's Emma, just in time for the 200th anniversary of the book!
