Bestseller Readers is a series of carefully chosen classical texts,
retold by modern authors in a way that will catch students’
attention. The aim of the series is to encourage students of
English to read for pleasure, rather than just for study purposes.
Carefully graded (vocabulary, syntax, grammar and content)
illustrated classical texts in six levels, retold by modern
authors. They encourage students to read for pleasure, help develop
vocabulary and give a ‘feel’ for syntax and different expressions.
Each title includes a glossary, a CD and activity book. One of
Dickens' most popular novels, Great Expectations tells the story of
an orphan called Pip and his attempts to rise from a poor childhood
and become a gentleman. On his way, he meets memorable characters,
such as Magwitch the convict, beautiful but arrogant Estella and
eccentric Miss Havisham.
