ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- A fabulous way of introducing eight of Charles Dickens' novels to primary aged readers. Excellent retellings - they lose nothing of the twisty plots of Dickens, and manage to include the casts of dozens of characters with great dexterity, whilst keeping the reader enthralled. Plenty of illustrations in a vaguely naïve style add to the text. Lindy Jones
