Oliver is now in London. It was not what he expected. He is seeing the poor side of London. He met a friend named Dodger. Dodger introduced Oliver to Fagin who is a very kind man. He fed the poor boys.
Fagin taught his boys how to steal by playing games. Oliver was not aware that he is supposedly meant to go and steal.
