"Even before I could read, I remember pouring through my brothers' copies of Classics Illustrated, over and over, especially their excellent comic book adaptations of 'Frankenstein', 'The Invisible Man', 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde', 'A Journey to the Centre of the Earth', and 'The War of the Worlds'."
Martin Powell, Author, March 2009
"I remember reading ‘The War of the Worlds' and I remember reading the book which I had ordered in school through the Scholastic Book Club. [‘The War of the Worlds'] was a classic "Classic". I've seen the old and new movie versions of that H. G. Wells classic, but my vision of what a Tripod looks like is still in that comic book. The comic of ‘The Invisible Man' had better special effects than any film of the time."

"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
