Description

From Oliver Twist and Great Expectations to A Christmas Carol and A Tale of Two Cities, the novels of Charles Dickens are among the best loved and most adapted in English literature. This charming and informative little gift book asks why, what, where, how, and who the Dickens was Charles Dickens? Why did he keep a pet raven that pecked at his children's shins? Why did he have a tunnel built under the road in front of his country house? Find out the answers to these and more questions, learn about his work and his most passionate social causes, and enjoy quirky stories and fascinating trivia about this singularly complex man and consummate artist.
