SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:

MY TAKE:
This book is another great addition to this series.

In Cozy Classics: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the story of Huckleberry Finn is retold in a few words and illustrated by photographs of felt-covered dolls.

Like the other books in the series, this book does a good job of picking words and important scenes that help tell the story of Huckleberry Finn. The pictures are as cute as ever and should appeal to kids, especially those of younger age.

This is a nice read for very young children, even if you don't really remember everything that happened in the novel.
