Cozy in Love (Hardcover)
After losing a test of strength to another musk ox in his herd, Cozy is convinced he’ll never impress his crush, Lofti.
But while he’s sulking, he learns of a bigger concern. His friend Bella, a beluga whale, is still playing in an inlet even though it’s cold enough for ice to form and block her way out.
Cozy races to the inlet and, sure enough, Bella is in trouble. Luckily, Cozy thinks of a new way to use his strong legs and tough horns that might help save Bella and win Lofti’s heart as well.
Jan Brett's newest story about this lovable character shows how helping your friends is always the right thing to do—no matter who is watching.
“Filled with descriptive candor and Brett’s riveting, distinctive illustrative style, the kindhearted musk ox bull Cozy returns in this exciting companion story that proves how strength of heart is beloved by all. . . [Cozy’s] quick-thinking and care for his friend [will impress] readers with the value of acting out of compassion without the ambition for attention. . . Awe-inspiring detail of the frigid Alaskan landscape and its creatures will enchant readers.” —School Library Journal
“Embracing her signature style, Brett frames each watercolor and gouache image with a rustic border. Side panels of spot art on each page work to foreshadow plot elements and introduce details of the expansive Alaskan setting—accurately drawn puffins, seaweed, starfish, and, fittingly, heart-shaped stones.” —Publishers Weekly
“An excellent winter read for Jan Brett fans.” —Brightly
