Overview

Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy, first published in 9 volumes between 1759 and 1767, is considered one of the great works of English literature.
It is also widely regarded as one of the most difficult to read because of its density and erratic, leap-frogging plot. This abridgment shortens the book to two-thirds of its original length, and slightly simplifies it, making it accessible to the general reader whilst retaining Sterne's wit and style.

About the Author

I'm a qualified teacher and librarian who has had seven children's books published in traditional form in the UK and USA. I've also had about 50 short stories published in British and Australian magazines. In 2012 I set up a child-friendly website, www.megamousebooks.com, to offer free children's stories, ebooks and printable puzzles. It's proving a full-time job, but a very enjoyable one!
