Nicholas Nickleby is the third novel by Charles Dickens. Nicholas has to take care of his mother and sister when his father dies. In a series of adventures, Nicholas is met with cruelty and social injustice, but is also a tale of openheartedness and the road to happiness.
This is a fast-moving and accessible series that offers a quick way into a range of classic novels. Each story is a shortened, dramatically illustrated version of the original book and loses none of the strength and flavour of the original.
