A fresh, funny and accessible retelling of Jane Austen's classic story, with witty black and white illustrations throughout.

Fanny Price is one of nine children, and her family are very poor. So when a distant relative offers to take her in - giving her the opportunity to grow up wealthy and comfortable - her parents jump at the chance.

But money doesn't always bring happiness, and Fanny struggles to settle into her new home, where the family are very cold towards her. Her only friend amongst them is Edmund, who tries his best to help her be happy.

As she grows up, Fanny realises that Edmund is the most important person in her life. But will he ever see her as more than the timid little girl who arrived at his home so many years before?

Ayisha Malik is a British Muslim, lifelong Londoner and lover of books. She has read and reread Austen's books throughout her whole life and is perfectly placed to bring Mansfield Park to a new audience.

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, Emma , Persuasion , Sense and Sensibility 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.
