Charles Dickens was very fond of children. One morning he was walking in the little square opposite his house in London. On a bench, he saw a little girl who was playing with a big doll. Suddenly the doll fell on the ground and broke. The girl began to cry. Dickens went up to her and said: "Come to my house, little girl and we shall see -if we can find another doll there."
So they went to Dickens's house and into the children's room, where there were a lot of dolls. Dickens took a big pretty doll and gave it to the little girl. She was happy to have a new doll. She thanked Dickens and ran home.
The girl's parents did not know who the kind man was. But they wanted to send him a present and thank him. So the next day they sent their daughter to Dickens with a book. When Dickens opened the book he saw that it was "David Copperfield", one of his novels.
