Ebenezer Scrooge is a mean old man with no friends or family to love him - he's just so miserable and bitter!

By visiting his past, present and future, will Scrooge learn to love Christmas and the others around him?

About the Author


Charles Dickens (February 7, 1812 - June 9, 1870) was an English writer who wrote over twenty novels, all of which are still read today, and which include famous books such as Oliver Twist and Great Expectations. A Christmas Carol, first published in 1843, was an instant success.

Praise For…


The cheerful poverty of the Cratchit family in A Christmas Carol, is a sure-fire tear-jerker. At one public reading by Dickens in Boston, there were "so many pocket handkerchiefs it looked as if a snowstorm had gotten into the hall"—Sunday Express

It has it all: a spooky ghost story, a heartwarming redemption and a great plot with a satisfyingly happy ending—The Times

A story which, perhaps more than any other, sums up the spirit of the British Christmas—Sunday Telegraph

One of the great achievements of British culture—D.J. Taylor

But that story endures and retains the power to move us because it speaks to the human heart, and gives us hope when hope is fading—Tony Parsons, Mirror
