I remember something like that from when I was a kid. Anything to get us Nintendo playing kids to read good literature. Ivanhoe was a real clunker. I liked reading about Knights and feats of arms too as a kid but that book put me asleep til I found a Comic Book version of it. It wasn't til later on that I was able to appreciate the Classics. After I got into Thackeray's Vanity Fair I knew I could get into and read anything. Nineteenth literature certainly was structured to where the Author communicated with the reader more. Dear reader this and dear reader that. More Communication but very tedious to the modern reader.Remember those comic books called Classics Illustrated?
