The Lovereading4Kids comment
October 2011 Guest Editor Roddy Doyle: A small boy called Pip is in a graveyard just as it’s getting dark. He’s looking at the grave where his parents and five brothers are buried. An escaped convict jumps out from behind a grave and grabs him. It’s the best start to a novel ever, and the rest of the book lives up to its start. I’ve always loved Dickens. I read him when I was 9, and I’m reading him today.
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
