Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this charming, beautifully illustrated book — out of print for more than sixty years — Samuel McChord Crothers warmly introduces children to the unique world of Dickens children: David Copperfield, the Micawber children, Joe the Fat Boy, Oliver Twist, the Jellyby family — to name a few. In 13 self-contained chapters, in simple, straightforward prose, Mr Crothers introduces the necessary background, and then gives us the scene itself as Dickens wrote it. The book is illustrated with the work of Jessie Willcox Smith, famous for her romantic and touching paintings and drawings of children.

About the Author
