Double the trouble! An original novel by Michael Rosen, told alongside the Dickens classic that inspired it: Oliver Twist.
Shona and her dad are moving house, and at Shona's new school, the rules are pretty confusing; she keeps getting into trouble without realizing! It's a lot like how it is for Oliver Twist, that boy she's reading about in English class.
After Shona is unexpectedly given a mobile phone, she begins to suspect there's something fishy about the new boys she's met. Where did the phone come from? And some gifts, she soon learns, aren't exactly free... Read two stories at once - both illustrated by Tony Ross.
