    Get this from a library! Charles Dickens and friends. [Marcia Williams; Charles Dickens] -- Retells five works by Dickens in comic book format: Oliver Twist, Great expectations, A tale of two cities, David Copperfield, A Christmas carol.

In David Copperfield, a book imbued with autobiography, Dickens wrote: “My father had left a small collection of books in a little room upstairs, to which I had access (for it adjoined my own.
