My 8yo loves this book. It isn't a big hardback but instead a handheld (say 8x6 inches approx) hardback book she can read in bed while laying back (in other words, not so heavy, big, and unweilding you have to bend over to read it like some large hardbacks). This simplifies the stories into readable understandable and colourful tales for those under 10's. Very pleased. Also purchased Shakespeare.

I bought this for my daughter, who absolutely loves Oliver Twist and wanted to discover more about other Charles Dickens stories. I hunted around for a childrens book rather than the original version and this was perfect. It has most of the Charles Dickens stories, but edited in such a way that children can read them on their own and the illustrations to match are also good. The book is hardbacked, but cushioned. It gives the impression to younger ones of having a very special book to read and keep forever.

Dickens' books have been edited so the story isn't quite as dark as the original version giving children their first taste of the classics.
Beautifully adapted, my child loved them.

This is by far one of the best purchases I have splurged on for my boys (normally we use the public library) and all three of my boys read it...7,8,9...they remarked how much they liked it and actually would talk about the different stories in there. Our favorite of the Usborne line are the Illustrated Stories series...

A good introduction to Dickens for children. I would say that these books are probably more suited to year 4,5 and 6 not because of the complexity of the words, but more to do with the more seroius story lines.
Usborne have managed to stay true to the original books without being too watered down.
They are also nicely illustrated which makes all the difference during the bedtime read. We have had a number of these books in the series and have neve been disappointed.
Top marks again to the masters of the childrens book.

Bought for my seven year old daughter for Christmas as an introduction to the great man. She is an avid reader and hopefully this will inspire her to carry on reading all the rest of Dickens' works. A really heavy, good quality, well illustrated book.
