David Copperfield (Calico Illustrated Classics) - School Library Journal
Fields has taken the original story and made it more approachable to younger and reluctant readers, losing none of the Dickensian drama. The characters are true to the original tale as are the plot and its development. McWilliam’s whimsical cartoon artwork illustrates the key moments in the story and heightens its emotions and situations.
Man in the Iron Mask (Calico Illustrated Classics) – School Library Journal
The language, sentence structure, and limited vocabulary make this appropriate for the middle grades and will introduce children to this literary classic.
Phantom of the Opera (Calico Illustrated Classics) – School Library Journal
Mullarkey uses simple vocabulary and sentence structure without losing Leroux’s drama, horror, and suspense.
