Orphan Oliver Twist grows up under wretched conditions in the poorhouse of a small English town. After taking up an apprenticeship to a coffin maker, his life becomes unbearable, and he flees to London to seek his fortune there. But life in the big city is no better. He falls into the hands of a gang of pickpockets who send him out to steal for them. Until finally, the amazing truth about his origins is revealed … A beautiful new illustration by Lev Kaplan of Charles Dickens’ classic novel.
