’Please, Mr Murdstone! Don’t beat me! I’ve tried to learn my lessons, really I have, sir!’ sobs David. Although he is only eight years old, Mr Murdstone does beat him, and David is so frightened that he bites his cruel stepfather’s hand. For that, he is kept locked in his room for five days and nights, and nobody is allowed to speak to him. As David grows up, he learns that life is full of trouble and misery and cruelty. But he also finds laughter and kindness, trust and friendship . . . and love. An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Charles Dickens original by Clare West.
"The most consistent of all series in terms of language control, length, and quality of storytelling." (David R Hill, ELT Journal Review)
