What to expect

Mysterious, dark and full of excitement, Oliver Twist takes readers on a compelling journey through the crime-haunted alleys of Victorian London.

It's heart-rending story of an innocent boy's struggle for survival is peopled by an unforgettable cast of characters - villainous Fagin, brutal Bill Sykes and the irrepressible Artful Dodger.

This vivid retelling for children is remarkably faithful to Charles Dickens' masterpiece while Tony Robinson's narration brilliantly evokes the atmosphere of 1830s London.

Sir Tony Robinson is an English actor - best known as Baldrick in the BBC television series Blackadder - comedian, author, presenter and political activist who is no stranger to narrating audiobooks, including his own children's series.
