On The Isle Of Dogs by Jackie North
An orphan and his street thief companion return to London, where their love is tested beyond endurance. This is the love story of Oliver Twist and The Artful Dodger.
Rejected by their families, Oliver and Jack brave the dangers they left behind and take residence at the Three Cripples. Their shared bedsit is small and riddled with bed bugs, but what does that matter when there is always cool beer on tap and the diversions of London are spread out before them?
