“Illustrated Stories from Dickens”
My favourite books in this are Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities and David Copperfield. The pictures are great and the stories are really interesting too. I didn't know that Dickens had also written A Christmas Carol, so I am going to buy that next. (Guy Robertson, aged 6, Australia).

Press reviews
