About the Author
Praise For Oliver Twist…
"It is no small task to condense one of Dickens's most beloved and frequently retold stories from 400 pages into a mere 88 while maintaining the major plot developments. However, remarkably, this graphic novel version is generally a success. . . . Owing to the minor violence and complexity of Dickens's plot twists, this would be suitable for middle school students who like darker stories; think A Series of Unfortunate Events for older readers." -- Library Journal
"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature." — Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)
