A beloved story, beautifully republished in this special,
Scholastic Classics edition of Oliver Twist.
"Please, sir, I want some more."
When Oliver runs away from a workhouse and is taken in by a group
of pickpockets and thieves, he finds himself plunged into a dark
criminal underworld. Fagin, the Artful Dodger, the menacing Bill
Sikes and kind-hearted Nancy all play their parts as Oliver struggles
to survive and find his real family.
A rich and unrivalled look at London poverty from arguablythe
greatest novelist of the Victorian era, Charles Dickens.
