The Old Curiosity Shop (King's Classics) Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The Old Curiosity Shop follows the life of Nell Trent and her grandfather, both residents of The Old Curiosity Shop in London. Nell’s grandfather gambles away everything in an attempt to make a better life for his granddaughter, forcing them to move to the countryside. Portrayed as infallibly good and angelic, Nell leads her grandfather on their journey to save them from misery.

The Old Curiosity Shop was so popular that New York readers stormed the wharf when the ship bearing the final instalment arrived in 1841. In 2007, many newspapers claimed that the excitement at the release of the last instalment of The Old Curiosity Shop was the only historical comparison that could be made to the excitement at the release of the last Harry Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
