Orphaned Oliver Twist lives in a cold, grim workhouse, until the day he dares to ask for more. Escaping to London, Oliver finds new friends and thinks he has a home at last. But his troubles are only just beginning… This retelling published by Usborne provides a nice introduction to the works of Charles Dickens. If you aren’t familiar with this work, be aware that thievery, murder and attempted suicide are part of the plot.
