Sterling Publishing Co., Inc. Oliver Twist

Please, sir, I want some more.

Oliver Twist's simple request has stirred pity ever since its first publication. An orphan sent to the workhouse, and then lent out to an undertaker whose wife treats him badly, Oliver runs away to London where he meets up with the Artful Dodger and elderly thief Fagin. A mixture of social criticism and brilliantly conceived satire, Oliver Twist criticizes the poor laws through a careful reconstruction of the London underworld.

Sterling Children's Books. Scratchboard illustrations by Scott McKowen. Discussion questions included. 445 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.
