Sweetser, Kate D.: Ten Girls From Dickens:. v1, 22 Feb 2008
From the Preface:
As a companion volume to Ten Boys from Dickens, this book of girl-life, portrayed by the great author, is offered.
The sketches have the same underlying motive as those of boy-life, and have been compiled in the same manner, with the same purpose in view.
Among them will be found several of the most popular of the creations of Dickens, notably, The Marchioness, Little Nell, Jenny Wren, and Florence Dombey, and it is hoped that in this presentation as simple stories of girlhood, their classic form and beauty may arouse in the young people of our day a new interest in the novels from which they are taken.
This volume and its companion will have accomplished their purpose when they have won fresh laurels and a wider audience for the famous writer to whom they are indebted for their existence.
K.D.S. April, 1902.
Illustrated with portraits of the characters.
