Publisher's Description

Charles Dickens’s sentimental classic about little Nell and her grandfather—a tale that has moved readers for generations

Little Nell Trent, as beautiful as she is virtuous, lives with her grandfather in his curiosity shop. The only ambition of Nell’s loving caretaker is to provide the young girl with a better life. But after attempting to gamble his way out of poverty, the old man finds himself indebted to the wicked and deformed moneylender Daniel Quilp. Thrust into a life of begging on the street, Nell and her grandfather are pursued by villains at every turn—but they never lose the compassion and generosity in their hearts.
 
With a diverse cast of characters that ranges from scoundrels and vagrants to the truly pure of heart, The Old Curiosity Shop shows Dickens at his best.

This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Author Bio

An international celebrity during his lifetime, Charles Dickens (1812­–1870) is widely regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His classic works include A Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Great Expectations, and A Tale of Two Cities, one of the bestselling novels of all time. When Dickens was twelve years old, his father was sent to debtors’ prison, and the boy was forced to work in a boot-blacking factory to support his family. The experience greatly shaped both his fiction and his tireless advocacy for children’s rights and social reform.
