A Tale of Two Cities by Pauline Francis, Charles Dickens

Retold for younger readers, Charles Dickens' classic tale looks at London and Paris leading up to, and during, the dramatic upheavals of the French Revolution

After being released from Bastille prison, Doctor Manette is reunited with his daughter, Lucie, in London. When Lucie falls in love with and marries a French émigré, terrors return to haunt the family as France suffers the convulsions of revolution. From the tranquil lanes of London, they are all drawn against their will to the vengeful, bloodstained streets of Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror, and soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine. This retelling has been shortened and illustrated for younger readers.
