The Lovereading4Kids comment
The original Christmas tale is brought to life in this colourful graphic novel adaptation. It is the second Charles Dickens title from Classical Comics and probably his best-loved story. Set in Victorian England and highlighting the social injustice of the time we see one Ebenezer Scrooge go from oppressor to benefactor when he gets a rude awakening to how his life is, and how it should be.
This is the original text of the classic novel but brought to life in full colour. If you would prefer to read a modern quick text of A Christmas Carol then click here.
A Christmas Carol: The Graphic Novel (Original Text) by Charles Dickens
Set in Victorian England, this Christmas tale highlights the social injustice of the time we see one Ebeneezer Scrooge go from oppressor to benefactor.
"Christmas isn't Christmas without this wonderful, uplifting tale. One would have to possess a heart like stone to be unmoved by the story of Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and, eventually, old Scrooge himself. Dickens' message about the importance of thinking of others is more relevant now than ever. His genius is that he can make the most cynical of readers become child-like and joyous at the turn of a page." - Ian McNeilly, National Association for the Teaching of English
"The art pages were so gorgeous I contemplated wearing gloves so as not to ruin them with my dirty fingers! So it isn't all talk and no action; the adaptation into comic - sorry, 'graphic illustrative' - format cannot be faulted." - www.ComicBitsOnline.com
