Pride & Prejudice

Jennifer Adams, illus. by Alison Oliver. Gibbs Smith, $9.99 (22p) ISBN 978-1-4236-2202-4
Launching the BabyLit series, this counting book delivers a (very) simplified version of Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Adams opens with "1 english village" and "2 rich gentlemen," the pale, dapperly dressed Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy. Later follows "4 marriage proposals" and "5 sisters," and the book closes with 10, as in "10,000 pounds a year." While many entries feel like filler ("6 horses, 7 soldiers in uniform"), Oliver's Edward Gorey–meets–Etsy sensibility should make this a hit with English lit students. Available simultaneously: Romeo & Juliet. Up to age 3. (Aug.)
