Dying to Know You
Needless to say, Grumply is grumpy that he has to share his house with a boy. And the boy and ghost are grumpy that they have to share with Grumply. This book is filled with letters written between all the characters over that magical summer.
Can Grumply make friends with his housemates, and write his book?? I think this is one of the most charming and fun children's stories I've ever read! The concept is creative and cute. The illustrations are just as much a part of the story as the text itself. This was fun to read!! There are seven books in this series and I will definitely be reading them all.
I think the cutest thing about the story is that all the names are puns: The inhabitants of the house mistakenly shot Oliver and left him wounded. The people of the house, Mrs. Maylie and Miss Rose, took him in to care for him.
The following day, Mr. Brownlow returned to London from a trip when Oliver sees him and takes him to meet the Maylies.
Dying to Know You Book Review
Edward Leeford was the father of Monks and Oliver. Nancy, being protective of Oliver, went on to meet them at the London Bridge and told everything to Mrs. Rose Maylie and Mr. Nancy did not realize that Fagin sent a spy after her because of her suspicious behavior who then informed everything to him. After Fagin disclosed whatever he heard to Sikes, believing that Nancy was a traitor, he brutally beat her to death that very night in a fit of rage turning himself into a murderer.
Sikes fled from London.
Fagin got arrested and sentenced to death by execution. Brownlow confronted Monks about his plot against Oliver and decided to give him a second chance. When asked, Oliver happily agrees to give Monks half of his inheritance. Monks misuses the money and dies in prison later. Brownlow on an emotional scene, Oliver visits Fagin, who was lost in a world of his own fear of impending death on the eve of his hanging in Newgate Prison.
Oliver Twist was adopted by Mr. Brownlow and was given love and care as well as a promise to live a proper life.
Dodger was convicted with a punishment of transportation to Australia, Charlie Bates became an honest citizen and Noah became a semi-professional police informer. The other characters such as Fagin, Nancy, Mr. Brownlow, The Maylies, Monks and the, Bill Sykes seemed far more interesting to me than the main character.
The mild sarcastic tone of the writer about his own characters was noticeable and helped with the rather grim storyline.
