Scholastic Classics: Oliver Twist

Absolutely classic Dickens. So exciting and stirring you can only be sure of one thing: you’ll want more. Oliver Twist has suffered every rotten stroke of luck you can imagine. Born in the workhouse. Orphaned at birth. Raised in a grotty children’s home. Now, aged nine, he’s been sent to an adult workhouse where he must slave all day for tiny rations of gruel. It sounds bad enough already. But when Oliver makes the mistake of asking nasty Mr Bumble for more food, he is chased away to the mean streets of Victorian London. Taken under the wing of a vicious gang of thieves, he soon ends up in the worst trouble of his life…
