    Powerful short versions of Dickens’ Novels This is definitely NOT a book for little children to read. Charles Dickens wrote stories that reflected life in the Victorian era - it was not pretty, or easy, for the poor. Many, if not all, the stories are abbreviated versions of many of his books, or extracts from them, e.g., David Copperfield and A Christmas Carol (Scrooge). I would, however, recommend that children, over the age of 12 years, be encouraged to read them so they find out what life was lik Powerful short versions of Dickens’ Novels This is definitely NOT a book for little children to read.

I would, however, recommend that children, over the age of 12 years, be encouraged to read them so they find out what life was like in Dickens’ time. It might make them more appreciative of their own lives. See my review also at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...

    I nice little collection featuring the children that are in Dickens' adult works. It acts as a great introduction to the rest of his work, and having read a few of them, it had characters that I was both familiar and unfamiliar with. This will prompt me to explore the novels I haven't read yet. I might make Dickens my author to concentrate on for next year, it's only by reading this that I've rediscovered my love for his writing style.

    This is a collection of short stories written by the granddaughter of Charles Dickens based on his works but retelling them through the eyes of some of the child characters. I didn't find this very satisfying, I have to say. The stories were abridged in odd ways at times and for anyone who isn't familiar with the original texts, they contain definite spoiler alerts which could mostly have been avoided.

    I hate to give any Dickens a three star rating, but this is the wildest collection of stories! Maybe these would be instructive on how stories can be adapted for a different audience? Almost all of the stories were a little strange and how they were adapted from the originals was awkward. If you are looking for Dickens for young people I don't think this is it.

    Short story versions of some of Dicken’s novels. An easier, shorter read than the novels but not really for children now as there is a considerable amount of death.

    Warning: stories about children, not for children. So depressing, death is a welcome blessing. It's part sampler and part synopses of his novels. Warning: stories about children, not for children. So depressing, death is a welcome blessing. It's part sampler and part synopses of his novels.

    Had the eBook downloaded so I thought it give it a go; I've been picking at it, alongside my other book, for the last couple of weeks. I was expecting different children's stories, rather than abridged copies of his other stories; but that being said it's inspired me to have a go at some of his bigger works, so that's something.

    Children's versions of some of Dickens' heroes Simple synopses of several of Dickens' novels, including David Copperfield, Great Expectations, and Bleak House. For either children or adults.

    Not as good as I was hoping and expecting. I've known some of Dickens classic stories but never really read his book. It was quite depressing to see so much loss in the stories but I suppose that was more realistic for the time. Some of the stories I would like to read the full length versions of.

    Apparently these are just small bits of longer novels. Quite depressing read as stories for children! Maybe the title is intended as stories about children.

    These stories are actually synoses or excerpts of Dickens novels, which was disappointing.
