A fresh, funny and accessible retelling of Jane Austen's classic story, with witty black and white illustrations throughout.

Emma Woodhouse is pretty, clever and rich, and sees no reason why she would ever need to get married.

But she loves matchmaking for her neighbours, despite the advice of her friend Mr Knightley, who warns her against meddling. Her latest success - the wedding of her governess - makes her certain that she can find the right match for anyone.

Can Emma's lucky streak continue? Or will best laid plans unravel... as they always seem to do?

The perfect way to discover Austen for the first time, this bright and bold collection features some of the most inspiring and famous heroines in English literature. For readers aged eight and up.
