Charles Dickens: Oliver Twist Retold for younger listeners by Roy McMillan (Abridged)

Among their other public buildings, most towns have a workhouse…

The evening arrived; the boys took their places.

Oliver had been at the undertaker's some three weeks…

The journey took him nearly a week.

It was late next morning when Oliver awoke…

For many days, Oliver remained in Fagin's room…

Meanwhile, back at Fagin's den…

Oliver was tended with all Mrs. Bedwin's care…

At length they turned into a very filthy narrow street…

Fagin locked him in the room, alone, for many days…

It was a chill, damp, windy night…

Bill and Oliver woke the next day at half-past five…

The night was bitter cold.

Fagin stopped to hear no more…

He had reached the corner of his own street…

And now we can return to Oliver Twist…

While they sat quietly, a gig drove up to the garden-gate…

Spring flew swiftly by, and summer came.

Not many weeks later…

On the next evening, Monks went to Fagin's house.

After a sleepless and anxious night…

It was nearly two hours before day-break…

The twilight was beginning to close in…

Monks drew his breath yet more freely…

In the Borough of Southwark stands Jacob's Island…

Some two days after these events, Oliver was travelling in a coach…

'The will,' said Mr. Brownlow, as Oliver's tears fell fast…

The fortunes of those who have figured in this tale are nearly closed.
