Where's Jane?
Smith, Rebecca, 1966-2018
An introduction to the novels of Jane Austen with the main characters and elusive author hidden in ten beautifully illustrated scenes. Can you find Jane Austen hidden in ten scenes from her beloved novels? This beautiful new book introduces young children to Austen's intriguing Georgian and Regency-era world, filled with all the makings of the best stories - sparky humour, legendary showdowns, secrets, love and triumph. Children spot the main characters in ten major scenes from Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, and Mansfield Park. First read a snappy synopsis of the story, then explore key stages through a simple, illustrated narrative as you meet the main characters. Next absorb the wonderfully detailed illustrations as you search for the characters and the elusive author in the big and bustling main artworks. Katy Dockrill creates the fun and engaging scenes that house Jane's immortal characters, from imperious Lady Catherine to timid Fanny Price, wicked Mr Wickham to sensible Elinor Dashwood, and proud Mr Darcy to feisty Elizabeth Bennet. Getting to know them all will keep young readers enthralled for hours.
