Dylan’s Cozy Doze
By Elsa Joseph
It’s nearly the weekend, so what better way of spending it than spending time with your little ones, than with a funny book. Today I have a review for Dylan’s Cozy Doze – a sweet, funny, rhythmic children’s book that would make for a good bedtime story or for cosying up and reading for pleasure. Thank you to Elsa Joseph for sending me the book and to the folks at Book Tasters for providing the opportunity to review.
About the Author
Elsa Joseph is the author of Best Kept Secret and Dylan’s Cosydoze. She gained her writing degree at London South Bank University, UK.
From an early age, Elsa had an ambition to be a writer. She often tried her hand at writing by entering writing contests, although little came from her early efforts. Besides her love of writing, Elsa has a passion for theatre and sits on the committee of a community theatre group which promotes new writing and encourages people to go to the theatre regularly.
Elsa draws inspiration for her books from travelling, art, theatre, reading and conversations with friends.
Living in London proves to be inspirational to Elsa as she sits at her desk in her office where she writes her stories and can merely look out the window at the hustle and bustle of city life to renew her creativity.
Elsa strives to make stories with interesting plots and beautiful scenery. Characters with great strengths and weaknesses that readers can identify and fall in love with.
Dylan cannot sleep without his Cosydoze, but it goes missing on a visit to Granny’s house. Where has it gone? And can Mumand Dad get Dylan to sleep without it?
This is a lovely picture book about Dylan and his “Cozydoze” – a muslin cloth he won’t let go of, even on his way in the car to granny’s house, where he goes and has some fun with a ball. Later tragedy strikes. His “Cozydoze” cannot be found and no substitute is good enough. It’s a sweet book with a nice rhythm to it and will make a good bedtime story for pre-school children. There’s also a nice part that encourages children to look at the pictures and think about how the muslin went missing.
It is also a story that many parents will be able to relate to, wherever in the world you live, as well as being a book that pre-schoolers will enjoy and find very amusing.
