      Marcia Williams began to develop her distinctive comic book style at an early age When I was about ten and wrote home to my family from boarding school, she says, I never wrote normal letters I tried to tell my family about what I was doing in a way that was fun Also, my parents didn t let me read comic books, so I decided to create my own This former nursery school teacher blends her storytelling skills and humorous illustrations with well known figures and stories from literature Her unique style has produced such vivid works and action packed books as GOD AND HIS CREATIONS TALES FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT Working on the Old Testament was a joy, Marcia Williams says The tales are so rich, it is always possible to find something new within them Yet, at the same time, they have all the comfort of the familiar The artist also found pleasure in creating CHARLES DICKENS AND FRIENDS, which presents five retellings of classic Dickens tales Of her inspiration for this book, she tells of a teacher she once had who was extremely fierce and angry except when she read the stories of Charles Dickens aloud Through her, all his characters lived, and I was transported to their Victorian world I hope that readers will also enter the wonderful world of Charles Dickens through this book With BRAVO, MR WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE and TALES FROM SHAKESPEARE Marcia Williams introduces young readers to the world of William Shakespeare s plays Another classic she has made much accessible to children and appreciated by them is THE ILIAD AND THE ODYSSEY My mother read me classics, but until I got older I never found them interesting, she says If I could make these stories accessible, I realized, kids wouldn t have to wait until they were grown up to appreciate them Marcia Williams traveled extensively as a child and was educated in Sussex, England, and Switzerland During her varied career she has worked as an interior designer and has assisted cartoon artist and designer Gerald Scarfe in making papier m ch and cloth sculptures.

    1. Marcia Williams has done a remarkably fine job in presenting her five favourite Charles Dickens novels in just 40 pages of brilliantly illustrated comic strip format And she has done it so well that she has captured the essence of every story, without missing any important detail.We have Oliver Twist, an honest orphan boy raised in a workhouse where he asked for gruel and was therefore sold He ran away to London, where after being befriended and taken in he unfortunately met a Mr Fagin and his [...]


    2. This book, is a re telling of some classics such as Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol However, these stories stood pretty tru to their orginal stories When I took this book off the shelf I did not expect it to be considered a graphic novel The illustrations on the front cover did not look like what I thought most graphic novels would contain It looked like a regular picture book to me Of course when I opened the book up, it did not have a typical comic strip structure to it Although, the frame [...]


    3. My kids loved this book They looked at it over and over and one of my sons read most of it himself before I got around to reading it out loud For obvious space reasons the books are very, very condensed but you still get a good feel for the plot and the main characters I felt like the little cartoon blurbs said by the characters were not useful in this book Most of the time they were confusing and didn t add anything I also don t really care for the artwork although my boys think it s great.Over [...]


    4. This children s book of Dickens tales makes the writer approachable for a modern reader aka our students.Many of our students find Dickens tough to get through because of the complexity of his style The is a great way to introduce Dickens and move beyond plot so students can dig into his words, his style, his message.Stories included Great Expectations, Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, David Copperfield, A Tale of Two Cities


    5. I love Dickens and obviously making his stories accessible for children can only be a good thing, but I think that, aside from A Christmas Carol these would all be pretty tricky for kids to follow In such a condensed form, with the beauty of language and style lacking, the plot twists often seem completely ludicrous as there is nothing to pull them together.




    6. Another great way to introduce children to the classics Includes Great Expectations, Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, David Copperfield, and A Tale of Two Cities.
