Young David Copperfield's life starts
to go wrong when his mother marries the cruel Mr Murdstone.
David is sent to school, where the headmaster, Mr Creakle,
hits him whenever he can. Poor David is only happy when
he is visiting the strange boat-house home of his nurse,
Peggotty, and her family. When he runs away from school
to find his aunt Betsy Trotwood, however, things begin
to get better.
Find out what happens to David as he grows up, and
how the friends - and enemies - of his unhappy childhood
affect his fortunes in later life.
Charles Dickens was a very popular
writer who lived in England in the time of Queen Victoria.
Many of his stories are about children, and the hard
lives of poor people in those days. David Copperfield
was Dicken's own favourite story.
