Oliver TwistUnknown - 1999
Mysterious, dark, and full of excitement, Oliver Twist takes readers on a compelling journey through the crime-haunting alleys of Victorian London. Its hear-rending story of an innocent boy's struggle for survival is peopled by an unforgettable cast of characters -- villainous Fagin, brutal Bill Sikes, and the irrepressible Artful Dodger. Often filmed, and adapted into a hugely successful musical, Oliver Twist remains as popular as ever. This vivid retelling for children is remarkably faithful to Charles Dickens's masterpiece, while Ian Andrew's illustrations brilliantly evoke the atmosphere of 1830s London. Photographs and historical facts place the story firmly in context, allowing readers to enter fully into the fascinating world of Oliver Twist.
