Publisher's Description

The story of Ebenezer Scrooge opens on a Christmas Eve as cold as Scrooge's own heart. That night, he receives three ghostly visitors, the terrifying spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. Each takes him on a heart-stopping journey, on which he visits Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, the horrifying specters of Want and Ignorance, and a host of other compelling characters. Will Scrooge's heart be opened? Can he reverse the miserable future he is promised? If he does, his miraculous transformation will be a true Christmas joy.

Dicken's ghostly tale has captured the hearts and imaginations of children and adults alike since its first publication in 1843. this edition, gloriously illustrated by award winner P. J. Lynch and featuring the complete and unexpurgated text, amply demonstrates that the story's message of love and goodwill holds as true today as ever.

About the Author

Charles Dickens (1812–70) is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian age. His work, which includes such enduring classics as David Copperfield, Oiver Twist and Great Expectations, has enthralled readers for generations. A Christmas Carol—which Dickens referred to as his “ghostly little book”—was an immediate success when published on December 17, 1843, and is often credited with popularizing the modern form of Christmas.
