Blurb: Stories selected and introduced by Walter Allen and Illustrated by Edward Ardizzone. Perhaps no writer in all of literature was better able to populate his world with memorable characters that immediately seemed so very true to life than Charles Dickens. Dickens' magical touch is evident throughout this delightful collection of stories including Horatio Sparkins, The Bloomsbury Christening and Mrs. Lirriper's Lodgings. Bringing the stories to vivid life are the wonderful illustrations of Edward Ardizzone.
