“Bah!” “Humbug!” Ebenezer Scrooge hates Christmas and he does his best to stop others enjoying it either. But then he gets a visit from three ghostly visitors – the ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet to Come. The three ghosts reveal some truths to the mean old Scrooge which make him change his mind forever. P.J. Lynch’s atmospheric illustrations capture the dark and cold world of Scrooge’s meanness and juxtapose them with the jollity that is traditionally associated with Christmas.
First published in 1843, this lavish, unabridged new edition resonates with the true spirit of Christmas. It is superbly illustrated by P. J. Lynch whose detailed, atmospheric artwork brings Dickensian London vividly alive.
