Students at St George’s CofE Foundation School produced ‘Twisted Oliver’
Pupils from a Kent school have created their own graphic novel based on Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist.
Working with graphic artist Jan Wheatley, students at St George’s Church of England Foundation School in Broadstairs took part in a series of workshops to translate the famous literature into artwork and text for their own novel, ‘Twisted Oliver’.
It formed part of Kent County Council’s Dickens 2012 libraries events and activities, which celebrate the work of the renowned author.
A celebration of ‘Twisted Oliver’ was held in Broadstairs on Monday with the unveiling of the finished comic.
Contributors were given their own copy to keep.
Free copies can be picked up in the teen section of Broadstairs library.
