Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2014 April #2
    Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is available in versions that are annotated, illustrated, zombified, and spun off into tales of supporting characters and future speculation. Enter into the field this delightful diary version designed to introduce young readers to the classic. Capturing the quick-witted Elizabeth's personality, the story is told in journal entries, augmented with the author's visually appealing illustrations (people, pets, sidenotes, etc.), all attributed to Lizzy as if she were painting them herself. The book also includes scrapbook-like features, such as notes to flip open, as well as announcements, a playbill, and the Meryton Ball schedule of events. (Although the scrapbook entries are of high-quality heavyweight stock, the question of how long the notes and letters will last in a library remains.) Still, this is the perfect read-together for a mother, grandmother, older sister, or aunt, with a delivery method that makes the well-worn story immediate and accessible.
