“A Guinea Pig Oliver Twist”
Bloomsbury offers “A Guinea Pig Oliver Twist” by Charles Dickens, adapted by Tess Gammell and Alex Goodwin. At 9 years old, Oliver Twist is transferred from an orphanage to a workhouse for adults. He is sold to an undertaker as an apprentice, and finally escapes to London, where he joins a pickpocketing gang. The book is illustrated with guinea pigs dressed in the tattered rags of street urchins that roamed the streets in gritty 19th-century London.
