When Charles was a boy he made up his own adventures. But after a Dickensian twist of fate saw his father go to prison for debt, Charles ended up working in a factory with other children.

We love this book! My daughter loves reading this one with me, and I have started to collect some kids versions of the Dickens stories which she's also getting into because of this book. Love the photos and facts in the back. The illustrations are sweet too.
