Sense and Sensibility

Written by Jane Austen

Illustrated by Ann Kronheimer

Part of the Real Reads Series

Sense and Sensibility Synopsis

Marianne seeks a man who shares her eager spirit; Elinor is in love with the polite, considerate Edward Ferrars. Their younger sister Margaret watches in bewilderment as Marianne and Elinor experience the joys and heartaches of early adult life. Is Marianne too warm or is Elinor too cold? Whose example should Margaret follow? Margaret records the dangers presented by scheming friends and deceitful lovers. Will Elinor's sense be strong enough to support both sisters, or will Marianne's sensibility bring tragedy? What will you learn as you read Margaret's account?

It s an excellent introduction to the novel for young readers. Respectful, smart, and playful, Gill Tavner s Real Reads adaptations belong with the very best of the many reinterpretations of Austen s novels.
