'Please, sir, I want some more.'

An orphan boy of seemingly no consequence goes on an adventure that will change his life forever.

Fleeing a cruel workhouse, Oliver finds himself taken under the wing of the Artful Dodger and caught up with a group of pickpockets in London. Navigating the seedy underbelly of the capital, Oliver's innocence is never corrupted as he struggles to find a loving family of his own.

Dickens' scathing attack on the harshness of Victorian poverty features some of his most memorable and enduring villains - the fiendish Fagin and monstrous Bill Sikes - and is a classic tale of good versus evil.

About the Author

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and grew up in poverty. This experience influenced 'Oliver Twist', the second of his fourteen major novels, which first appeared in 1837. When he died in 1870, he was buried in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey as an indication of his huge popularity as a novelist, which endures to this day.
