Dear Andrea,
I want to share with you how much my students and their parents are enjoying your Dickens’ book. They all tell me they love it and are now inspired to read Dickens. It has been very eye- opening for them to learn what miserable lives the poor had, and particularly the poor children of London. Thank you so much for writing this book.


Karen Vitco Matthews, North Carolina
