Juvenile Fiction

First published in 1836, “A Child's Dream of a Star” is a short story by Charles Dickens about a little girl who loses her sister, finding her only source of solace to be the star they once looked at together. A charming tale not to be missed by fans and collectors of Dickens's seminal work. Contents include: “These Two Used to Wonder”, “One Clear Shining Star”, “The Sister Drooped”, “A Little Grave”, “A Great World of Light”, “'Is My Brother Come?'”, “The Company of Angels”, “'Thy Mother is No More'”, etc. Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812–1870) was an English writer and social critic famous for having created some of the world's most well-known fictional characters. His works became unprecedentedly popular during his life, and today he is commonly regarded as the greatest Victorian-era novelist. Although perhaps better known for such works as “Great Expectations” or “A Christmas Carol”, Dickens first gained success with the 1836 serial publication of “The Pickwick Papers”, which turned him almost overnight into an international literary celebrity thanks to his humour, satire, and astute observations concerning society and character. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
