Charles Dickens and Friends: Five Lively Retellings by Marcia Williams

Marcia Williams, Author, Marcia Williams, Illustrator Candlewick Press (MA) $17.99 (48p) ISBN 978-0-7636-1905-3
With her usual engaging approach, Marcia Williams tackles the works of Charles Dickens (as she has Homer, Shakespeare and others in the past) in Charles Dickens and Friends. A handful of Victorian classics-Oliver Twist; Great Expectations; A Tale of Two Cities; David Copperfield; and A Christmas Carol-unfold in sepia-toned cartoon panels with a pacing that plays up Oliver's plea for ""More,"" the storming of the Bastille, and Marley's ghostly appearance to Scrooge.
