When Lizzy Bennet’s father gives her a diary, she fancies she will use it to write a novel, as her real life is exceedingly dull. Then the handsome Mr. Bingley moves to nearby Netherfield Park, and suddenly life is every bit as thrilling as a novel would be. Who will he dance with at the Meryton ball? Who is his haughty friend? Will Lizzy ever receive a marriage proposal? Readers will have to read her diary to find out! Marcia Williams offers a lively introduction to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice in a highly illustrated scrapbook-diary format, featuring such novelties as foldout notes from sisters and suitors, an elegant bill of fare, and an invitation to the ball.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
A delightful diary version designed to introduce young readers to the classic. Capturing the quick-witted Elizabeth’s personality, the story is told in journal entries, augmented with the author’s visually appealing illustrations (people, pets, sidenotes, etc.), all attributed to Lizzy as if she were painting them herself. ... The perfect read- together for a mother, grandmother, older sister, or aunt, with a delivery method that makes the well-worn story immediate and accessible.
Tiny sketches, watercolors, recipes and wonderful little foldouts of invitations, letters and other minutiae encourage much perusing. Dried flowers, reproductions of paintings and other objects are worked into the diary collages, as are comments by Lizzy about dresses, ribbons and delicacies. Her delight in walking through the fields and opening her mind to many things is evident, and of course, it all ends with the appropriate weddings.
This illustrated middle grade treasure brings Elizabeth Bennet alive for the younger crowd. ... Austen diehards will be as charmed as girls meeting the Bennet clan for the first time.
