Jane Austen’s beloved heroine Lizzy Bennet tells the story of Pride and Prejudice in her own words in an illustrated diary created by Marcia Williams.
When Lizzy Bennet’s father gives her a diary, she fancies she will use it to write a novel, as her real life is exceedingly dull. Then the handsome Mr. Bingley moves to nearby Netherfield Park, and suddenly life is every bit as thrilling as a novel would be. Who will he dance with at the Meryton ball? Who is his haughty friend? Will Lizzy ever receive a marriage proposal? Readers will have to read her diary to find out! Marcia Williams offers a lively introduction to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice in a highly illustrated scrapbook-diary format, featuring such novelties as foldout notes from sisters and suitors, an elegant bill of fare, and an invitation to the ball.
Marcia Williams has written and illustrated many children’s books, including The Romans: Gods, Emperors, and Dormice; Greek Myths; Tales from Shakespeare; Ancient Egypt: Tales of Gods and Pharaohs; and The Elephant’s Friend and Other Tales from Ancient India. Her humorous comic-strip illustrations are readily recognizable and hugely popular all over the world. She lives in London.
