"As an introduction for children to classic works of literature they excelled in bringing classic stories to life with simplified but engaging storylines and captivating illustrations. The images brought colour and vigour to accompany the enduring quality of the stories themselves.
"I can still remember reading the 'Count of Monte Cristo' issue for the first time and being enthralled, then seeking out the full version of Dumas' timeless classic. I personally credit Classics Illustrated with instilling a love of reading and great literature that has remained with me my entire life."
LaterLife, February 2009
"I would certainly recommend any parent hoping to inspire an interest in the "classics" of literature to consider exposing their children to this excellent version of the story.
"Certainly the art is striking. The cover is simply superb, and Cameron's Tripods are a masterpiece of design."
John Gosling, Writer, on ‘The War of the Worlds'
"I like these illustrated Children's Classics. I'm a great fan of comics and the comic strip and I think these books offer a good way for young readers to get into some of the greatest stories ever told. My three-year old was particularly keen on the ‘Goldilocks' one and has asked for it again and again!"
Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate
