Part of the Awesomely Austen series, this is a fresh, funny and accessible retelling of Jane Austen’s best-known story, with witty black and white illustrations throughout.
Elizabeth Bennet is the second eldest in a family of five daughters. Although their mother is very keen to see them all married to wealthy men, Elizabeth is determined that she will only ever marry for love.
At a ball, Elizabeth meets Mr Darcy, who at first she believes is proud and haughty. But perhaps there is more to him than first meets the eye…
The Awesomely Austen series is illustrated by Eglantine Ceulemans who captures all of Austen’s satire and wit, bringing her colourful casts to life with warm and funny illustrations. Look out for editions of Emma, Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey each retold by a different author. The perfect way to discover Austen for the first time!
