Description

* "Making no assumptions about her readers' prior knowledge of Dickens, his novels, or the period, Warren writes in a clear, direct, vivid manner that brings it all to life."
--Booklist, starred review

"A well-researched biography explores how Charles Dickens used his stories to effect social change for London's most destitute children... A lively biography and an interesting lens through which to see a venerated author."
--Kirkus Reviews

* "The author adeptly makes connections between Dickens's own experiences and key events and characters in some of his greatest novels... Readers will come away with a real sense of Dickens's immense influence in both literature and society as well as an appreciation for the compassionate, tireless man who championed Victorian England's most vulnerable citizens."
--School Library Journal, starred review
