Synopsis

Classics Illustrated #1: Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, Rick Geary, Rick Geary

The bittersweet tale of one boy's adolescence, and of the choices he makes to shape his destiny. Into an engrossing mystery, Dickens weaves a heartfelt inquiry into morals and virtues - as the orphan Pip, the convict Magwitch, the beautiful Estella, the bitter Miss Havisham, the goodhearted Biddy, the kind Joe, and other memorable characters entwine in a battle of human nature. Rick Geary's delightful illustrations capture the newfound awe and frustrations of young Pip as he comes of age, and begins to understand the opportunities that life presents.

Reviews

* It's astonishing how well Geary hits the high points of the serpentine story. The art captures the drama. Readers will come away understanding why the story has endured. -Booklist
