David Copperfield - School Library Journal

Fields has taken the original story and made it more approachable to younger and reluctant readers, losing none of the Dickensian drama. The characters are true to the original tale as are the plot and its development. McWilliam’s whimsical cartoon artwork illustrates the key moments in the story and heightens its emotions and situations.
