Oliver Twist
Retold by Les Martin

August 1990

From Publishers Weekly
A Twist of Beauty An inviting design may inspire readers of a newly abridged edition of Charles Dickens's classic Oliver Twist to join the hero in asking, please sir, for more. Christian Birmingham spots nearly every page of text with a small, charcoal-gray image, and complements important scenes with full-page color illustrations. Birmingham's hues are predominantly deep, somber and gritty, but not without occasional flashes of royal blues and golds. Text is shaded in the faintest yellow, soft on the eye.Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-5-- An adaptation of a major portion of H. G. Wells's classic. Rapid-fire short sentences and sentence fragments set the pace and add to the intensity of the action. The Time Traveler and several of his friends are quickly introduced, and then readers are immediately drawn into the future world. The protagonist narrowly survives his initial travels, returning to tell his friends about his harrowing adventures. He sets off once again, leaving the story's end in question--possibly motivating readers to turn to the original for further exploration. Eden's numerous black-and-white drawings are effective in enhancing the narrative. While certainly not a substitute or replacement for the depth and perspectives offered by the real thing, this version lends itself to presentation and discussion with young...

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-5-A bare-bones adaptation of the classic novel. The simplified text is action packed, but the dialogue is stilted and the descriptive passages are uninspired. However, these flaws will not deter students looking for frontier adventure or a book about the movie (about the book). Several large pencil illustrations are included, but no map accompanies the historical note. Not a necessary purchase, but it may hook reluctant readers.Gale W.

Review
"[Cooper's] sympathy is large, and his humor is as genuine -- and as perfectly unaffected -- as his art."

A Perilous Power

From Booklist
Trevor Blake has always known that he possesses magical gifts, but the small farming community where he lives forbids magic of any kind. Despite this local ban, Trevor hopes to learn more about his powers and immerse himself in the study of magic, and so he journeys with his best friend to the city Port-of-Lords, where he hopes to search for a hidden community of gifted magicians called the Adepts. Along the way, the friends encounter many challenges as Trevor attempts to master the arts of magic and survival. This dramatic story, the prequel to Sabin's A School for Sorcery (2002), with its young magician will inevitably invite comparisons to J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. And like Rowling's titles, this wholly satisfying fantasy features memorable characters, compelling story lines, and plenty of climactic...

From School Library Journal
Grades 4-7--The St. Charles Players perform this readers' theatre-style rendition of H.G. Wells' classic story. Using appropriate sound effects and alternating readers allows listeners to differentiate between characters and to develop a sense of place and time. The lively narration will hold listeners' attention from beginning to end. The story begins with a revolutionary Victorian scientist who claims to have invented a machine that allows him to travel through time. Using flashbacks, he recounts his adventures in the futurist world he visits in his time machine to a group of skeptical friends. This abridged version will work well as an introduction to classic literature in elementary grade classes, but omits too much of the original text for older students. Consider adding this title to audiobook...

Review
"The power of [Dickens] is so amazing, that the reader at once becomes his captive, and must follow him whithersoever he leads."
--William Makepeace Thackeray


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Book Description
One of the most swiftly moving and unified of Charles Dickens’s great novels, Oliver Twist is also famous for its re-creation–through the splendidly realized figures of Fagin, Nancy, the Artful Dodger, and the evil Bill Sikes–of the vast London underworld of pickpockets, thieves, prostitutes, and abandoned children. Victorian critics took Dickens to task for rendering this world in such a compelling, believable way, but readers over the last 150 years have delivered an alternative judgment by making this story of the orphaned...
