Overview

When young Pip accidentally meets a convict out in the marsh one Christmas Eve, he has no idea that his life is about to change—forever.   The amazing events following that encounter, and the strange tale of Miss Havisham and her adopted daughter Estella, have made Great Expectations a must-read since it was first serialized in 1860. Now, young readers can enjoy Dickens’s engrossing story in this simplified yet thrilling version.
