Cozy Classics is a series of board books for very young children that attempts to introduce them to classic works of literature. The books are illustrated with handmade felt dolls.

Oliver Twist contains just 12 words. Words that will be somewhat key to those familiar with the story. To those not familiar, I'm not sure they would mean anything. It would be interesting to see if these words could embed a love for the stories for these children later in life. The pictures that illustrate Oliver Twist tend toward the darker and I'm not sure how a young child would interpret these.

The series is cute, original and works on more than one level. I think many adult literature lovers will be picking these up for a smile.

I was given a review copy of this book by Smith Publicity and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for letting me review this adorable entry in the series.
