About the Author

Charles Dickens's early childhood was happy until his father was imprisoned for debt. The 12-year-old Dickens then began working ten-hour days in a boot-blacking factory pasting labels on the jars of thick polish. The shocking conditions of the factory made a profound impression on him. His anger at his situation and at the conditions endured by working-class people became major themes in his fiction. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

One of the grand masters of Victorian literature, Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation,but also the horror of the infamous debtors' prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and "slave" factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years' formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney's clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work.

This child's story about the imaginary romance of a boy and girl, missed the mark. I found it rambling and confusing. I kept losing the plot in the changes from the adult characters to the juvenile group. The language lacket the clarity and precision that I usually find in Dickens' work and if this was first published serially in the newspapers, some of the chapters are missing.

This is a little story by Dickens that was charming and rewritten from various perspectives with good descriptions which were surprising in the end of the story.

Not my favorite story by Dickens, but I think kids would like it. It is actually three stories in one.
