About the Author:

Christian Birmingham is a young artist of outstanding talent. In 1991 he graduated from Exeter College of Art and Design and has since illustrated several highly praised books. Christian lives in Brighton, Sussex.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8. This attractive, oversized adaptation remains true to the classic in plot and in atmosphere. Even though some minor characters and scenes have been omitted entirely, many lines of dialogue and paragraphs of description, including Nancy's death and Fagin's last hours in a jail cell, are repeated verbatim from Dickens's original, maintaining the ambiance as well as the story line. Readers who are only familiar with the play or movie will be surprised to find Dickens's plot more complicated than the simple version used for stage and screen and may need to do some rereading to realize that things are not what they expected. One fortunate omission from the original is that Fagin is just Fagin, without any ethnic description attached. The text is illustrated with occasional, small, black-and-white drawings and full-page, full-color, dark, moody paintings that add to the atmosphere and help keep readers involved through large, full pages of text. Consider this for all libraries?it's still a great story, and this adaptation may actually get some young people to read it.?Susan L. Rogers, Chestnut Hill Academy, PA
