This is a beautifully illustrated retelling of Victor Hugo's masterpiece. Marcia Williams retells one of the greatest novels of all time in her trademark accessible, highly illustrated style. A wonderful introduction to Victor Hugo's epic tale of injustice, love and heroism in 19...th century France. The story follows Jean Valjean, an ex-convict, as he tries to put his criminal past behind him. Will he manage to escape from the ruthless Police Inspector Javert, who is determined to see him behind bars again? Can he build a life with Cosette, an orphaned girl he has rescued from poverty and neglect? When Cosette grows up and falls in love with the handsome Marius Pontmercy, will Jean Valjean let Cosette go? Or will the revolution that is sweeping through the streets of Paris tear all their lives apart? This title features stunning full-colour illustrations that bring Victor Hugo's masterpiece to life. It is an accessible, faithful and moving retelling by a master storyteller. Marcia Williams brings the world of 19th century France to life with her trademark humour and sensitivity. 2015 marks 200 years since 1815: the year the novel begins. 2015 is also the 30th anniversary of the stage musical. Les Miserables is the world's longest running musical and has been seen by 65 million people in over 42 countries.
