Mark Twain by Gregg Camfield


Mark Twain by Gregg Camfield

Stories for Young People is a new series which continues Sterling's fine tradition of bringing top-quality literature to children in a format they will enjoy. As with the critically-acclaimed Poetry for Young People and Young Reader's Shakespeare series, these new volumes will feature: beautiful artwork throughout, introductions by leading scholars, biographies of the author, text annotations to enhance understanding. Mark Twain (Samuel L. Clemens) brings his unique humour and unbridled imagination to five stories which are guaranteed to make children think and smile at the same time. His colourful, irreverent takes on human nature show why he is considered to be the greatest American humourist of all time. This enchanting collection, complete with charming illustrations, is sure to delight children. All the stories - which are carefully chosen for reading level and child-appeal - are complete and unchanged from their original version.
