As part of Libraries Dickens 2012 events and
activities, students from St. George’s C of E Foundation School in
Broadstairs worked with graphic artist, Jan
Wheatley. During September/October 2012 the students
created fantastic artwork and text based on Charles Dickens’

sharing ideas to produce their own graphic comic ‘Twisted Oliver’.
