The Usborne Complete Jane Austen: All the Novels Retold.
Beautiful color illustrations by Simona Bursi. The six novels, plus Lady Susan, with a chapter at the end on Austen's Life and Times. Reduced for young readers without sacrificing the intricacies of the stories and keeping excellent dialogue. Introductory illustrated cast for each novel helps kids keep track of the action. 400 pages in a pretty volume with high quality paper, ribbon bookmark, pretty headbands, this volume will be a keeper as kids grow up and maybe share with their own kids someday. Our 10 year-old bookstore reviewer Izzy gives this volume two thumbs up! Usborne Publishing Ltd, London. 2018. Hb. NEW. $24.00
