5.0 out of 5 stars Do your kids a favour, they will love this......
If, like me , you have a 10yr old who would rather kick a ball than read a book, or an 8yr old who devours books, then this is a must buy.
It is short enough to tell the story before losing their attention, long enough to get the story across without losing any of the drama or intrigue and just enough malice and scheming to make it "cool" ( important especially when...

3.0 out of 5 stars very very abridged
I have been searching high and low for an abridged version of this book that would do justice to the original; my son is too young to read the original yet, but I remembered reading a very good abridged version that was not too challenging yet contained plenty of exciting detail to make it an unforgettable read. I thought this version might be it but sadly, it is too...

This review is from: The Count of Monte Cristo (Young Reading, Series 3) (Young Reading Series Three) (Hardcover)
If, like me , you have a 10yr old who would rather kick a ball than read a book, or an 8yr old who devours books, then this is a must buy.
It is short enough to tell the story before losing their attention, long enough to get the story across without losing any of the drama or intrigue and just enough malice and scheming to make it "cool" ( important especially when your friends find out you're reading a French classic).
The story moves at a pace with great pictures alongside, but not so many as to make it a picture book.
It has made my (non-reading) son WANT to read more and for that I am forever grateful to usborne for pitching an amazing classic at kids and getting them to read.
Onwards and upwards.....

This review is from: The Count of Monte Cristo (Young Reading, Series 3) (Young Reading Series Three) (Hardcover)
I have been searching high and low for an abridged version of this book that would do justice to the original; my son is too young to read the original yet, but I remembered reading a very good abridged version that was not too challenging yet contained plenty of exciting detail to make it an unforgettable read. I thought this version might be it but sadly, it is too basic and childish, meant more for 6-9 year olds who have just started reading independently. The illustrations are attractive, and the text is large enough for that age group, but a lot of the (in my opinion essential) details have been lost or glossed over. If you really want your child to get the most out of this brilliant story, I'd wait to buy him a more detailed version.

This review is from: The Count of Monte Cristo (Young Reading, Series 3) (Young Reading Series Three) (Hardcover)
Lovely story, perfect introduction to classic stories. My nine year old granddaughter really enjoyed the book and talked about the story afterwards. The book was delivered quickly and in excellent condition. I have bought other titles in this series with equal success. Highly recommended.
