Publisher Description

Mysterious, dark and full of excitement, Oliver Twist takes readers on a compelling journey through the crime-haunted alleys of Victorian London. It's heart-rending story of an innocent boy's struggle for survival is peopled by an unforgettable cast of characters - villainous Fagin, brutal Bill Sykes and the irrepressible Artful Dodger. This vivid retelling for children is remarkably faithful to Charles Dickens' masterpiece while Tony Robinson's narration brilliantly evokes the atmosphere of 1830s London. Sir Tony Robinson is an English actor - best known as Baldrick in the BBC television series Blackadder - comedian, author, presenter and political activist who is no stranger to narrating audiobooks, including his own children's series. © 1839; 1999 Charles Dickens; Naia Bray-Moffatt © 2000 DK Audio

About Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.

About Tony Robinson

Tony Robinson is an actor and audiobook narrator and actor whose first professional appearance was at the age of thirteen in the original version of the stage musical Oliver!, followed by a number of shows, films, and TV appearances as a child actor. After training at the Central School of Speech and Drama, he spent several years in rep, and worked for two years as a theater director, before moving on to the Chichester Festival Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and the National Theatre.
