A fresh, funny and accessible retelling of Jane Austen's classic story, with witty black and white illustrations throughout. Emma Woodhouse is pretty, clever and rich, and sees no reason why she would ever need to get married. But she loves matchmaking for her neighbours, despite the advice of her friend Mr Knightley, who warns her against meddling. Her latest success - the wedding of her governess - makes her certain that she can find the right match for anyone . Can Emma's lucky streak continue? Or will best laid plans unravel... as they always seem to do? Katy Birchall is the author of the IT Girl and Secrets of a Teenage Heiress series . An Austen obsessive, she's incredibly excited to introduce Emma Woodhouse to a whole new raft of readers. Eglantine Ceulemans captures all of Austen's satire and wit, bringing her colourful casts to life with warm and funny black and white illustrations. Illustrated and retold editions are also available for: Pride and Prejudice , Persuasion , Sense and Sensibility , Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey . The perfect way to discover Austen for the first time, this bright and bold collection features some of the most inspiring and famous heroines in English literature. For readers aged eight and up.
