In an interview with the New York Times, Singh explained her assignment. “My challenge was to make something that’s classic look appealing to tweens,” she said. “We wanted to make them fashionable and beautiful, with bright colors and handwritten text.”
It’s been a while since I was a tween, but I’d still like to have these works of art (not to mention fabulous works of literature!) on my shelf. Seriously—if you haven’t read Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights or Sense and Sensibility, it’s high time you experienced the passion, humor and unforgettable heroines of 19th-century literature.
Here’s how you can win the books:
