Praise for Classic Starts(TM)

"The books have won the praise of a number of educators. Peggy Charren, a visiting scholar at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, an advocate for higher-quality children's media, and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, said she has read several {and states}'they're terrific.'"--The Wall Street Journal.

"Where abridgements are useful in introducing literature to grade-schoolers not equipped to handle the real thing, books in this series will fill the bill."--Booklist.

"Large print, short chapters, and an abundance of white space provide an attractive, more-accessible option for readers who are not ready to handle the originals."--School Library Journal

"Even those who dislike adaptations will find much to admire in this retelling..."--School Library Journal (for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer)

"This...retelling will be appreciated by readers not yet ready for the original work."--School Library Journal (for Anne of Green Gables).
