“This moving tale of gentle kindness serves as a clarion call for anyone searching for a book about creating your own community in times of trial.  For readers who haven’t a musk ox of their own to snuggle up with, this tale proves just as cozy.” -Kirkus


“Children will love the cumulative growth of an unusual home, and, as usual, the illustrations alone make this a safe bet for Brett-friendly collections.” –School Library Journal


“During a period in which some families are spending more time together in tight spaces, the comforting live-and-let-live message is timely.” –Publishers Weekly


With over 42 million books in print, Jan Brett’s exquisite art is universally recognized as being among the finest in children’s books today. In the last 30 years, Jan Brett has been celebrated for her well-known wintry tales like The Mitten, The Three Snow Bears, Gingerbread Baby and more. In COZY, a group of clever animals find an unusual but warm and furry home during Alaska's long winter. COZY stars Cozy, the softest musk ox in Alaska, with the warmest fur you ever did feel. When a storm hits while he's separated from his family, he starts to feellonely -but not for long. As the snow piles up, animals start to notice just how warm and cozy Cozy really is! One mama lemming has a bright idea: maybe the best place to spend the winter is under Cozy's fur! As more and more animals burrow in, Cozy adds to the house rules: quiet voices, gentle thumping, claws to yourself, no biting, and no pouncing. That seems easy enough, until the lemmings, snowshoe hare, snowy owl, arctic fox, and wolverine begin to bicker. Luckily, signs of spring soon appear, and that means Cozy can find his herd and his new friends can head to their summer homes. But not before promising to get cozy with Cozy next year! Jan Brett brings a new lovable character to life through this gorgeous tale of sharing, found families, and living in harmony. And for each of her books, Jan Brett does meticulous research. This time, she visited a Musk Ox farm in Palmer, Alaska where she met the animals and learned about their wintry home! Jan Brett books allow kids, teachers and librarians to travel the world, even when stuck inside.
