The Lovereading4Kids comment
Ebenezer Scrooge is famous for hating Christmas. He hates the celebration and the feasting, regarding it all as humbug!

Dickens’s other stories about Christmas are also included in this volume.

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.

But one cold Christmas Eve, Scrooge receives some unusual visitors who show him just how very mistaken he's been...
