CLASSIC TAILS -
the greatest works of literature, as told by the finest breeds
We all have our favourite classic novels; books that have been beloved to us since childhood, whose wonderful stories and rich tapestry of characters are unsurpassed in modern literature. How, you may ask, could these marvellous works ever be improved upon?
Reader, ask no more...for we present Pugs & Prejudice
Mrs Bennet has five unmarried daughters, living in a house that can only be inherited by a male heir. The Bennet litter must be married off soon - but to whom?
Adorable Mr Bingley seems like a perfect match for beautiful and sweetly tempered Jane Bennet; and perhaps his dashing but aloof companion Mr Darcy might be just right for her witty sister Elizabeth?
Or perhaps not...
This book has everything you adored about Jane Austen's classic novel - the wit, the warmth, the love story - with everything the original lacked - namely, a colourful cast of adorable pugs dressed head to paw in Georgian clothing.
Turns out Mr Darcy is even more lovable with a fuzzy muzzle.
Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite classics so I knew straight away that I had to read this Pugs and Prejudice retelling!
This was a super cute read which is a great way to introduce young readers to the tale, with beautiful pictures every other page and quirky turns of phrase. For example one of my favourite bits is about Kitty, “who was a little odd – but no one could quite figure out why”, is depicted in the images as a cat.
Pugs and Prejudice is a super short retelling, with pug references and focuses on the main points of the story . The illustrations are in a vintage style and adds to the telling of the story. To be honest this was a cute read that put a smile on my face and all the pugs references were perfect! This is one book that will remain on my shelf for a long time.
