Classic Graphic Novels, the new collection from Lucent Books, brings the classics to life for a whole new generation of readers. 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.
In Oscar Wilde's funny, satiric twist on the traditional ghost story, the Otis family from America moves into Canterville Chase despite warnings that the old English country house is haunted. Soon none of them can deny the presence of Sir Simon, who has roamed the halls for three hundred years, and who, try as he might, cannot scare the Otises in the least.
"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."
