Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The celebrated P.J. Lynch captures the spirit of Dickens's beloved tale in a richly illustrated unabridged edition.

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, yielding glimpses of Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit, the horrifying spectres of Want and Ignorance, even Scrooge's painfully hopeful younger self. Will Scrooge's heart be opened? Can he reverse the miserable future he is forced to see?

Now in an unabridged edition gloriously illustrated by the award-winning P.J. Lynch, this story's message of love and goodwill, mercy and self-redemption resonates as keenly as ever.

Synopsis:

The words and emotions of this classic tale are brought to life with exceptionally detailed illustrations that re-create the look and atmosphere of 19th-century London, produced by the winner of the Hans Christian Andersen Medal. Full color.

Synopsis:

The words and emotions of Dickens's classic tale are brought to life with exceptional detail and clarity. Each unforgettable illustration portrays a world only Dickens could have envisioned--mysterious, haunting, beautiful.

About the Author

Charles Dickens (1812-1870) is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian age. His work, which includes such enduring classics as DAVID COPPERFIELD, OLIVER TWIST, and GREAT EXPECTATIONS, has enthralled readers for generations. A CHRISTMAS CAROL was an immediate success when first published on December 17, 1843, and has remained continuously in print ever since.

P.J. Lynch is one of the most talented and revered illustrators working today. He has won many awards, including the Mother Goose Award, the Irish Bisto Award twice, and the Kate Greenaway Medal twice — in 1995 for THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE OF JONATHAN TOOMEY and again in 1998 for WHEN JESSIE CAME ACROSS THE SEA. P.J. Lynch lives in Dublin, Ireland.
