Designed especially for young fans of the classics, comic book buffs and reluctant readers, this collection utilizes a fresh blend of contemporary storytelling and captivating artwork to entertain, educate and encourage students to return to these stories again and again.
Frankenstein, Great Expectations, Henry V, Jane Eyre and Macbeth offer something for everyone with their genre and storyline variety -- from monsters to orphans to kings and more.

Plus, the hardcover library binding provides added durability.
"Most useful in a classroom setting, these volumes could serve as introductions to literary classics as well as companion volumes for students benefitting from a modified text."
