Overview

"Quick, quick," cried the Ghost, "or it will be too late."

Wilde's clever parody provides an entertaining twist on the traditional gothic horror story. A materialistic American family moves into the English mansion of Canterville Chase, much to the annoyance of the resident ghost!

This brilliant and often overlooked story is a wonderful commentary on how Wilde saw "free" America challenging "traditional" England - all under the guise of a charming, heartwarming and comical book.

The book includes an illustrated Character List (like a Dramatis Personae), over 120 pages of story artwork, and fascinating support material that details the life and work of Oscar Wilde - all beautifully presented in color.

Designed to encourage readers to enjoy classical literature, titles in the Classical Comics range stay true to the original vision of the authors. This title has been moderately and sympathetically abridged from the original text to fit within the graphic novel format, but still features the entire Wilde dialogue.

Like all of their titles, this Classical Comics production remains true to the original novel, and features incredible artwork that will engage any reader.

To support the use of this title in the classroom, photocopiable teachers resources are available that offer lesson plans and activities from 6th grade and up: ISBN 978-1-906332-78-5
