Awesomely Austen - Illustrated and Retold: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice Synopsis

A fresh, funny and accessible retelling of Jane Austen's best-known story, with witty black and white illustrations throughout. Elizabeth Bennet is the second eldest in a family of five daughters. Although their mother is very keen to see them all married to wealthy men, Elizabeth is determined that she will only ever marry for love. At a ball, Elizabeth meets Mr Darcy, who at first she believes is proud and haughty. But perhaps there is more to him than first meets the eye... Katherine Woodfine is best known for her historical series, The Sinclair Mysteries, which includes The Clockwork Sparrow. A huge fan of Jane Austen from a young age, she's perfectly placed to bring the Bennet sisters to a new audience. Eglantine Ceulemans captures all of Austen's satire and wit, bringing her colourful casts to life with warm and funny black and white illustrations. Illustrated and retold editions are also available for: Emma, Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey. The perfect way to discover Austen for the first time, this bright and bold collection features some of the most inspiring and famous heroines in English literature. For readers aged eight and up.

Awesomely Austen - Illustrated and Retold: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice Press Reviews

This is an utterly glorious addition to any school library, classroom or home bookshelf, I will certainly be buying many copies as gifts! Katherine Woodfine has managed to capture the vivacity of Jane Austen's masterpiece, has preserved many of the most famous original lines, maintained the personalities of the characters whilst rewriting to make this accessible to a younger audience. I have been reading it with a group of Year 5 pupils (aged 9 and 10) in library club, and they have been spellbound, audibly groaning when the bell goes to signal the end of break or lunchtime. * Toppsta *
