ABOUT THE BOOK
Set in Alaska, COZY IN LOVE is a gorgeous reimagining of the classic folktale, The Crow and the Pitcher.
After a defeat in a battle of strength, Cozy is convinced he’ll never impress radiant Lofti. But while he is sulking, he learns of a bigger concern—his friend Bella the beluga whale is about to get trapped in fast forming ice. Cozy races to the inlet where Bella is in trouble. Luckily, he thinks of a new way to use his strong legs and tough horns to help save her. Cozy, the lovable musk ox, shows how helping your friends is always the right thing to do— no matter who is watching.
No one does winter like Jan Brett. The Alaskan landscape and animals will delight teachers librarians, and kids.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jan Brett lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts close to where she grew up. During the summer, her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills. She is a New York Times #1 bestselling author/ illustrator, of over 40 picture books with over 44 million in print, and has brought to life lovable characters and imaginary backdrops for children for more than 40 years. Her illustrations are adored for their classic beauty and vibrant, lifelike images of animals, landscapes, and flourishes from cultures around the world. As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, “I remember the special quiet of rainy days, when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I’m drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real.”
While Jan is most known for her children’s books, she is also an award-winning breeder of ornamental fowl (fancy chickens!). Some of her best book ideas come from other interests including extensive exploration of the natural world, marathon training, and while listening to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, where her husband is a musician. Her work has been chosen as “Best Children’s Books of the Year” by The New Yorker, Parents, Redbook, and others. In 2021 she received the prestigious Regina Medal for her continued distinguished contribution to children’s literature from the Catholic Library Association (CLA).
