The Lovereading4Kids comment
A favourite of Michael Morpurgo: "The first few pages were so engaging, Marley's ghostly face on the knocker of Scrooge's door still gives me the shivers."
This gorgeous and sumptuously illustrated new edition of the completely unabridged A Christmas Carol is an absolute dream of a gift. The illustrations are by the award-winning artist Robert Ingpen who has successfully captured the atmosphere of Victorian London and brings to life the unforgettable characters that Dickens created. In addition, Dickens' short story A Christmas Tree is included at the end of the book.
Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Christmas: everyone loves Christmas except for Ebenezer Scrooge whose name has become synonymous with a miserly outlook on life. Hating Christmas as usual and doing all he can to spoil everyone else’s fun, Scrooge is visited by three ghosts one year and between them they make him change his ways…The result is one of the most wonderful accounts of the fun and feasting that Christmas can bring.
If you're looking for other timeless classics illustrated by Robert Ingpen then look no further than The Jungle Book.
A Christmas Carol with A Christmas Tree (illustrated by Robert Ingpen) by Charles Dickens
‘Bah, humbug! Fools wishing me a Merry Christmas should be forced to sit on cushions stuffed with holly leaves or boiled with their own Christmas puddings.’ Miserable old miser Ebenezer Scrooge hates Christmas. Can somebody so selfish, so harsh and so horribly lonely ever change his ways? In one terrifying night, poor Scrooge is haunted by four ghosts. Why do they show him visions of his past? Why do they show him other people enjoying Christmas? Why do they show him the deaths of a young boy and of a miserable old miser? Weep and laugh as you read this much-loved Christmas story. Will Scrooge always think that Christmas is ‘Humbug’, or will he learn to shout ‘Merry Christmas, one and all’?
'A Christmas Carol is a perfect introduction to Dickens'. Anthony Horowitz
