Little Miss Austen Pride and Prejudice, A Counting Primer by Jennifer Adams is part of the trendy Babylit Books, a series designed to introduce very young children to great works of literature such as Austen, Bronte and Tolstoy.

This volume is a counting book, focusing on the numbers one to ten. It begins with "1 English village" and proceeds through "2 rich gentlemen" and so on up to "10,000 pounds a year." The illustrations by Allison Oliver are cute, and reminded me a little of the literary web comic Hark, A Vagrant! by Kate Beaton.

It is a board book, so you could give it to toddler without worrying to much about them damaging it but the book is much more a joke for parents to enjoy than an actual children's book.

Little Miss Austen Pride and Prejudice would make a cute baby shower gift for an Austen fan but probably isn't really worth reading to your child. If you like this sort of thing the series also includes Anna Karenina, Wuthering Heights, Dracula and A Christmas Carol.

Rated: 5/10
