i found this amazing book at a book sale this past summer. i love the irony of the book...i find it very clever. i also love dicken's david copperfield. well, i love dickens. these copperplates illustrate the story very well and i like the style of illustration too. there are 46 illustrations in all with short quotes from the story filling in the gaps.
the publisher's note sums it up nicely...
