DK Illustrated Classics presents classic novels in a format that is both accessible and appealing to today's visually literate students. Each book contains the original, unabridged text, interspersed with background information, explanations of themes, maps, timelines, definitions, and carefully chosen illustrations that enhance the mood of the story.
In Charles Dickens's classic novel, a young man is lifted mysteriously into the life of a gentleman.
An absorbing mystery as well as a morality tale, the story of Pip, a poor village lad, and his expectations of wealth is Dickens at his most deliciously readable. The cast of characters includes kindly Joe Gargery, the loyal convict Abel Magwitch and the haunting Miss Havisham. If you have heartstrings, count on them being tugged.
