A Boy Called Dickens BSW766

US$15.95

For years Dickens kept the story of his own childhood a secret. Yet it is a story worth telling. For it helps us remember how much we all might lose when a child's dreams don't come true . . . As a child, Dickens was forced to live on his own and work long hours in a rat-infested blacking factory. Readers will be drawn into the winding streets of London, where they will learn how Dickens got the inspiration for many of his characters. The 200th anniversary of Dickens's birth was February 7, 2012, and this tale of his little-known boyhood is the perfect way to introduce kids to the great author. This Booklist Best Children's Book of the Year is historical fiction at its ingenious best.

本書透過作者黛博拉霍金森和繪者約翰.亨德里克斯,編織了一個有趣而寫實的故事,看狄更斯從一個在倫敦街頭的孩子,如何轉化成為最知名的文學人物之一。
透過本書了解狄更斯如何用自己的想像力和創造力,逃脫他生活中的困境和遺憾,並在不幸的情況下勇於追求夢想。
故事一開始,作者就邀請讀者進入故事的場景─倫敦,一起來認識那個時代的社會樣貌,並用像捉迷藏、尋人的遊戲方式,一起來瞭解這位偉大的小說家─查爾斯.狄更斯,儘管這其實是一個嚴肅的故事。
