Description

A fresh, funny and accessible retelling of Jane Austen’s classic story, with witty black and white illustrations throughout.

When Elinor and Marianne Dashwood’s father dies, they are forced to leave their home behind and move far away to a tiny cottage. Their lives look set to change for ever, in ways neither had expected.

Elinor must leave behind the man she loves, whereas Marianne falls for their charming – but entirely unsuitable – new neighbour.

The sisters will need each other’s support if they are to find happiness, but will they ever find the right balance of sense and sensibility?

Joanna Nadin is a winner of the Fantastic Book Award, the Surrey Book Award, Blue Peter ‘Book of the Month’ and Radio 4 Open Book ‘Book of the Year’. She has recently fallen head over heels for Austen’s books and wants new readers to feel the same.

Eglantine Ceulemans captures all of Austen’s satire and wit, bringing her colourful casts to life with warm and funny black and white illustrations.

Illustrated and retold editions are also available for: Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Persuasion, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey. The perfect way to discover Austen for the first time, this bright and bold collection features some of the most inspiring and famous heroines in English literature. For readers aged eight and up.
