The Lovereading4Kids comment
“Bah!” said Scrooge. “Humbug. ” Christmas calls for a reading of A Christmas Carol! Charles Dickens’s story of mean old Ebenezer Scrooge who hates Christmas and refuses to celebrate or even allow others to celebrate. But then, one year, he is visited by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley who warns Scrooge of the misery he is piling up in the future. Can Scrooge change his ways? And what will Christmas be like afterwards? Paired with the original illustrations by Arthur Rackham this is a gift edition for all ages.
The Good Book Guide Review. At last, an illustrated (by Michael Foreman) Christmas Carol that preserves absolutely the flavour of 1843 yet benefits from the modern techniques of colour and black and white printing. ‘May it haunt your house pleasantly’ was Dickens’ wish for his story. It surely will.
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Ebeneezer Scrooge is a cruel, mean, miserable old man. Safely tucked up on his bed one cold Christmas Eve, he has no care in the world for his poor employee Bob Cratchit and his dying son Tiny Tim. But Scrooge's fortunes are set to change. He will soon receive a visit from the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present and the Ghost of Christmas Future. This will be a Christmas that he will never forget...The Christmas classic is one of Dickens' most famous works, and has become an integral part of the British Christmas.
