Another enchanting confection of charmingly naive illustrations, doodles, fold-out letters, menus and programmes. Williams convincingly captures the idiom and cadence of the language of the time, and readers yet to encounter the real Elizabeth Bennet will be introduced to an appropriately feisty heroine as Lizzy. . . Winningly, Williams has also thought up names for Mr Darcy's four dogs * Books for Keeps *
An easy and enjoyable pastiche of Austen's . . . its special delight lies in the illustrations, Elizabeth's whimsical marginalia and wry visual commentary on her world * The School Librarian *
