Адаптированная книга OlivervTwist by Charles Dickens A long time ago every town in England had a workhouse. This was a house for very poor people. Oliver Twist was born in a workhouse. His mother was a young woman. She was very ill when she came to the workhouse.

A doctor and a woman were with her. After Oliver Twist was born his mother said, ‘I want to see my baby and then die.’

‘You are too young to die,’ said the woman.

The doctor put the little baby in his mother’s arms. She kissed the baby and died.

‘She’s dead,’ said the doctor.

‘Poor dear! She came here last night. No one knows where she’s from,’ said the woman.

The old woman began to dress the baby with very old clothes. Oliver was alone in the world. He was an orphan ‘. No one loved him.

When Oliver was small he lived in an orphanage with other orphans. He and the other children had very little food and very little love. Many of the children died because they were cold or hungry. Oliver survived  but he was small and thin. His face was very white.

On his ninth birthday Oliver left the children’s home. He was sad to leave his only friends. He went to live in a workhouse. He worked long hours for the workhouse. They gave him only one bowl of porridge three times a day and an onion twice a week. On Sundays he had a small piece of bread. Oliver and his companions  were very hungry and very unhappy.

They never asked for a second bowl of porridge. They were afraid. But after three months they became terribly hungry. One day Oliver took his empty bowl to the master.

‘Please sir,’ he said, ‘I want some more porridge.’

The master looked at Oliver. He was surprised.

‘What?’ he said.

‘Please sir,’ he said, ‘I want some more porridge.’

The master hit Oliver with his big spoon Then he called Mr Bumble. He was an important officer of the town.
