The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best-selling illustrator Quentin Blake brings fresh appeal to Charles Dickens’s classic Christmas story in this lovely edition. He captures the essence of the miserable Ebenezer Scrooge who would like to live without kindness, charity, love and especially Christmas which he hates particularly because it involves spending money. But everything changes for Scrooge when he is visited by a succession of ghosts who make him see the error of his ways. Now Christmas can come alive and Ebenezer Scrooge is transformed. The warmth of the newly found Mr Scrooge is especially delightfully captured by Quentin Blake. ~ Julia Eccleshare
Quentin Blake's a Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
A beautiful edition of Dickens's timeless Christmas classic. A Christmas Carol is the book that defines the Christmas spirit. Ebenezer Scrooge, a mean-spirited miser, is visited by three ghosts one Christmas Eve. The ghosts show Scrooge the true value of Christmas: charity, good humour and love for his fellow man. Quentin Blake's colourful illustrations guide the reader through Scrooge's lively journey to find the meaning of Christmas.
This unabridged edition contains a foreword by the illustrator and is the ultimate Christmas gift book.
The oversize format, large print and combination of both spot art and full-page images create an accessible layout for those first becoming acquainted with the story. Publishers Weekly
