Oliver Twist (Puffin Classic)
The classic story of a young boy who seeks his fortune on the streets of London. After Oliver Twist asks nasty Mr Bumble for more food, he has to flee the workhouse for the streets of London. Here he meets the Artful Dodger, who leads him to Fagin and his gang of pickpockets. When a thieving mission goes wrong, Oliver narrowly avoids prison and finds himself in the care of kind Mr Brownlow. But Fagin and the brutal Bill Sikes go in search of the young orphan, determined to drag him back.
When we read we gain a great story but we also peek into other cultures, traditions and lifestyles. These Puffin Classics cleverly help open that door to peek inside. These editions include the full story text of each classic along with much more. Each book includes an introduction, but at the back is where you'll find the bonus features. In approximately 15 pages of additional material, you'll find an author profile, a guide to characters, Things to Do, Things to Think About, further investigations into specifics for that book (get a tour on the Hispaniola or delve into a Victorian Christmas, for example) and activities. Black line drawings are sprinkled throughout. 5" x 7", sc. ~ Ruth
