From Pip to Sidney Carton and more: A World Full of Dickens Stories by Angela McAllister

Would you like to introduce a child to the magic of Charles Dickens’s stories?  The novels themselves, of course, are lengthy while this collection is a beautifully illustrated introduction to a number of the books.

Included in the retellings are Oliver Twist, The Old curiosity Shop, David Copperfield, Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities, A Christmas Carol, Nicholas Nickleby and Hard Times. Each story begins with a helpful illustrated list of characters.

The stories are expertly retold, having sufficient detail to not just be summaries, and may well inspire a child to read one of the full length books.  That would be a good project for the current moment. All in all, a wonderful resource.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
