Celebrate the bicentenary of Dickens' birth with this beautiful gift edition of Oliver Twist Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist is one of the best-loved stories ever written. The story of the young orphan is as powerful now as when it was first published over a century ago. The text in this edition has been carefully abridged so that it is accessible to younger readers and retains both the drama and the humour of the original. Throughout, Christian Birmingham's exquisite illustrations enhance the story and bring to life the amazing range of colourful characters. With a foreword from Michael Morpurgo.
