Charles Dickens is not only the author of some of the best-loved stories in the English language, but also the creator of some of its most memorable characters. Meet them all between the pages of this splendid book, which retells, in lively comic-strip style, five of Dickens's most popular stories: Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities, David Copperfield and A Christmas Carol.

This is just an awesome book, so full of delightful, incredibly detailed pictures. I'm not sure who it would be for though. Maybe an adult who knew all of Dickens' novels backwards and forwards? Or someone taking English Lit, who wanted something light for a change? Anyway, the illustrations are great, and the character of the novels really comes through.
My 10 year-old son ABSOLUTELY LOVES this book. We found it at the library and when we began the book, I told him we would only read a few pages because I had to get back to work. He agreed because he figured it wouldn't be that interesting. By the time my customer got there (about halfway through "Oliver Twist," he was so engrossed in the story that he pleaded with me for us to finish reading the story together. My customer was very gracious and waited patiently while we finished the story.

I was so impressed that I plan to invest in as many Marcia Williams books as we can afford. If it incites his desire to read, it is most definitely worth the money.
The book was not the one pictured. I was a different name and cover with the same stories inside. Also, it took forever to get here, and yes it came in the time frame given. I would have sent it back but my grandson was so glad to finally get it he wouldn't let me.
