Charles Dickens’ work has now been made available to download as part of a new educational iClassics Collection of AppBooks.

It has been launched in an effort to drive up reading levels in pupils at primary school.

It comes after recent figures revealed that half of all boys aged 11 failed their Year 6 Sats exams.
