Do you ever wonder what people mean when they talk about “classic novels”? Sometimes it might mean a book we should have read, but probably have not. You might have been given some of these books as gifts, and they’ve been sitting on your bookshelf ever since. On the other hand, a “classic” might be a book that you’ve read five times, can quote from on any occasion, and annoyingly push on to other people with the words: “You have to read this. It’s a classic.”
In the SGS Junior School Library we have a cool series of books called Great Illustrated Classics, which are easy-to-read adaptations of ”classics”, featuring large print and illustrations on every other page. The series is targeted at children, but the writing style is suitable for older readers as well. Currently there are 70 titles including books like Dracula (by Bram Stoker), Gulliver’s Travels (by Jonathan Swift), and White Fang (by Jack London).
