Product description

It’s no fun being poor like Oliver Twist. After Oliver asks nasty workhouse boss Mr Bumble for more food, he is chased out of the workhouse and left to fend for himself on the mean streets of Victorian London. His luck seems to be changing when he meets the Artful Dodger, a sly urchin who leads him to Fagin’s gang of pickpockets. But then a thieving mission goes horribly wrong. Avoiding prison by the skin of his teeth, Oliver finds himself in the care of kind Mr Brownlow. But Fagin and the brutal Bill Sikes are looking for Oliver, and they are determined to drag him back… This gripping classic of life on the Victorian streets now includes an unmissable introduction from fantasy author Garth Nix.

    Great to watch on tv but reading it is very hard going as it’s quite an accomplished book but over all a great read if you get through it

    The puffin classic’s tagline is, “They’re Puffin Classics for a reason. It’s because they’re the best.” That is SO true. They are fantastic – and this one is one of my favorites. It’s incredible!

    I would recommend buying this marvellous novel by Charles Dickens becuase I like how the story goes when he asks for more food and the he gets sold to an undertake. The he meets the artful dodger. It may be a little hard to read but it is a great book.
