Marcia Williams’s bio

Charles Dickens and Friends
Five Lively Retellings

author/illustrator: Marcia Williams

"OLIVER TWIST, GREAT EXPECTATIONS, A TALE OF TWO CITIES, DAVID COPPERFIELD, and A CHRISTMAS CAROL are distilled into six- to ten-page stories that include the bare rudiments of each plot and droll illustrations featuring dialogue taken directly from the original works, spilling out of the frames into the margins with additional witty commentary." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"A fresh retelling that makes a good story as well as an introduction to classroom reading assignments or school dramatizations." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS

"With small, teeming cartoon scenes so boisterous they frequently burst their borders, Williams catapults readers headlong through five of Dickens's best-known melodramas." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
