Baker Street Readers

Baker Street Readers take some of the world’s most famous stories from literature and retell them in a fun and accessible way for a new generation.

These books are perfect for readers of all ages as they retell the classic stories in just 64 pages, including the best known quotes and scenes with colour illustrations throughout.

As well as the fantastic illustrations, we love the extra material in these books. There is a “cast of characters” list, information on the historical background of each book, discussion points about the story and some great age-appropriate recommendations for further reading.

Scroll down for some inside spreads from Pride and Prejudice, one of our favourites, to get a feel for these charmingly illustrated books.

The series is also a brilliant classroom resource, thanks to the characters pages and suggested themes for class discussions and independent study.

These famous stories from literature are just as engaging today as they have ever been, and these books can be a great way to unlock a love of the classics.

Our readers agree too:

"I really like this copy of Oliver Twist. It's got bigger writing for children and lots of pictures to look at
The story isn't as long as the original book and I am finding it much easier to understand what's happening"
(Reviewer, aged 7)

"I love all beautiful colour illustrations through the book. I really like the fact that the characters are described at the front of the book so I could come back to it to see how everyone looked like and what kind of people they were." (Reviewer, aged 7)

"Such a lovely introduction to the story of Oliver Twist. The original story is a bit too long for me to read to my daughter so it was lovely to read a shorter, well illustrated version of the story that she thoroughly enjoyed"

"The Time Machine has beautiful coloured pictures drawn by Felix Bennett. I also love H.G.Wells’ stunning, excting and sometimes scary stories." (Reviewer, aged 8)
