"Praise for "Classic Starts(TM)": "
" "
"The books have won the praise of a number of educators. Peggy Charren, a visiting scholar at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, an advocate for higher-quality children's media, and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, said she has read several {and states}'they're terrific.'"--"The Wall Street Journal."
"Where abridgements are useful in introducing literature to grade-schoolers not equipped to handle the real thing, books in this series will fill the bill."--"Booklist. "
" "
"Large print, short chapters, and an abundance of white space provide an attractive, more-accessible option for readers who are not ready to handle the originals."--"School Library Journal"
"Even those who dislike adaptations will find much to admire in this retelling..."--"School" "Library Journal" (for "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer)"
" "
"This...retelling will be appreciated by readers not yet ready for the original work."--"School Library Journal" (for "Anne of Green Gables").
