This is a lively, easy to use and informative biography of Charles Dickens with humorous illustrations. Charles Dickens brought to life some of our favourite fictional characters, such as the Artful Dodger and his avaricious boss, Fagin, the miserly Scrooge and the spiteful Miss Havisham. But what inspired him? Who was the man behind the pen? Why have his stories endured the test of time? Michael Rosen's chatty and engaging narrative helps answer these questions, and further explores the world of Dickens and his best-known works.
