Re-discover the classics--and help readers do the same! The Count of Monte Cristo is a rip-roaring adventure. Pride and Prejudice is an endearing romance. Howard Fast's April Morning is fascinating historical fiction and a moving war story. The list goes on. The trick is to find the right book for the reader. Frolund's guide can help. By identifying the genre characteristics of more than 400 classic fiction works, and organizing titles according to those features, it helps readers find the types of books they enjoy; and it helps you promote classics to teen (and adult!) readers. Includes information on hundreds film and audio versions, and other adaptations, a chronology, and a grade level index. Grade 9 through adult.
