Synopsis

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.

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Liz Evans

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
