Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Join award-winning author, critic, and anthologist Michael Rosen for a spirited tour of the life and work of one of our greatest novelists. With stunning illustrations by Robert Ingpen, this accessible, child-friendly book vividly re-creates the world of Charles Dickens, from the author's childhood in London to his early career, his performances, and, of course, the great social and political upheavals of the time, which inspired so much of his work. Michael Rosen's vibrant discussion covers some of the best-known novels by Dickens, describing Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, and David Copperfield, and providing a fascinating detailed analysis of Great Expectations.

Review:

"Young readers will clearly recognize how the misfortunes and difficulties Dickens experienced in childhood influenced his writing." Children's Literature

Review:

"The full-page portraits of some of the major characters give clear insight into their physical attributes and emotional realities....[T]his title has merit for elucidating some of the literary devices for which Dickens is known." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

What the Dickens is all the fuss? Take a lively look at an author whose indelible characters live on in our language and culture — and whose legacy shapes our literature to this day.
