"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
