Ebenezer Scrooge is famous for hating Christmas. He hates the celebration and the feasting, regarding it all as humbug!
But then he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come, as well as the ghost of Jacob Marley. Scrooge changes his tune and a glorious Christmas celebration follows.
Dickens’s other stories about Christmas are also included in this volume.
'Bah! Humbug!' Mr Scrooge is a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, miserable old man. Nobody stops him in the street to say a cheery hello; nobody would dare ask him for a favour. And I hope you'd never be so foolish as to wish him a 'Merry Christmas'! Scrooge doesn't believe in Christmas, charity, kindness - or ghosts. But one cold Christmas Eve, Scrooge receives some unusual visitors who show him just how very mistaken he's been...
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. It surely will.
It has it all: a spooky ghost story, a heartwarming redemption and a great plot with a satisfyingly ending. The Times
