" Perhaps not the most captivating book, but a nice book about Charles Dickens. I think my favorite aspect of this one were the book summaries for each novel! " said.

" Fabulous lay out and engaging historical facts. A must for all children's libraries. " said.

" Happy 200th birthday Charles Dickens! This scrapbook is a fun but briefest of overviews of Dickens' life and work. " said.

" A fun and informative biography. Will appeal to readers who like those dragon and pirate books with the information inserts. " said.

" A great book for introducing younger readers to the life and times of Charles Dickens. It is beautifully laid out with plenty of info., great pictures, and appealing little flaps containing summaries of some of his best-known works and more. " said.

" I love the interactive format of these Templar books but I question whether children between the ages of 8 and twelve would be compelled to desire to read this book. The selection of historical figures for this series seems ill chosen. I admire the works of Dickens but I did not particularly love this book. At best, it was OK. " said.

" The life of Charles Dickens is as intriguing as his novels. The author has combined pertinent facts with fascinating pictures and photos that capture Victorian England in a most unusual way. It is like looking through a scrapbook that introduces many of his characters while making us aware of that time and place. Each page includes notes to open, announcements to read, and facts that bring to life this unique man. " said.

"This book was fun and informative. While I cringe at the scrapbook-like nonfiction kids books in the library (oh the pieces!), they are rather nifty--tons of information on each 2-page spread. And I enjoyed the little things about Dickens' books and friends and illustrators and much more. It was a great way to honor the 200th birthday of Dickens (a month late) without reading a full-scale bio. I thought it interesting that much of the book related conditions of England/London, but it makes sense seeing as Dickens addressed so many of the conditions in society then. I learned quite a bit about an author whose books I've enjoyed. A shame I've never read more about him. Perhaps I'll consider a heavier bio later on, but for now this was awesome." said.
