Summary

The world's greatest classics retold for children.  

Nick Carraway's mysterious neighbour Gatsby gazes across the dark bay at a distant green light.  

As the summer unfolds, Nick is drawn into Gatsby's world of luxury cars, speedboats and extravagant parties. But the more he hears about Gatsby - even from what Gatsby himself tells him - the less he is sure of the truth. 

Did Gatsby really go to Oxford University? Was he a hero in the war? Did he once kill a man?  

Nick recalls how he came to know Gatsby. He recounts how he enters the world of his cousin Daisy and her wealthy husband, Tom. But does their money make them any happier? How do everybody's stories connect?  

Will you come to know the real Gatsby after reading Nick's account of that fateful summer?
