Pride and Prejudice: A Retelling by Laura Wood

Books from Barrington Stoke are so often my go-to recommendations for teachers and parents.

First and foremost, they are fantastically engaging stories from some of the best, current authors in the UK. The quality of the writing is incredible and children are soon carried away in the adventures.

What makes Barrington Stoke books really special is their dyslexia-friendly style. The font, spacing and page tint combined with specially selected, accessible vocabulary mean that so many children can enjoy these brilliant books.

Their new books for January 2021 are no different. Fun, diverse and so engaging, they are sure to be a hit!

Pride and Prejudice

A Retelling by Laura Wood

This wonderful retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice has all the charm of the original with outspoken characters, family drama and the excitement of Mr Bingley coming to Netherfield Park.

The balls are lively, the dialogue is witty and Mr Darcy is as brooding as ever. Readers will find themselves swept away into the Regency era, able to understand the language and themes of the classic story.

My eldest daughter is a huge Jane Austen fan and has just completed the huge challenge of reading the original Pride and Prejudice. I know this Barrington Stoke version will be perfect for helping her cement the key events in her mind and great to come back to when she studies the story in her GCSE English. My younger daughter isn’t up for the original but really likes the look of this more accessible version. Having this option means they can both enjoy the timeless story and talk about it together.

Thank you to Barrington Stoke for another brilliantly accessible classic!
