Excerpted from Gerald Charles Dickens' Introduction: "I envision (Dickens' children) playing happily as their father reads, changing the narrative now and then to keep their interest. 'You never saw a locust, because they belong to that country near Jerusalem, which is a great way off. So do camels, but I think you have seen a camel. At all events, they are brought over here, sometimes; and if you would like to see one, I will show you one.' "
