Synopses & Reviews
The final volume in the Everymans Library Charles Dickens collection: the timeless story of everyones favorite misanthrope, Ebenezer Scrooge, together with four more of Dickenss Christmas tales and with Arthur Rackhams classic illustrations.
No holiday season is complete without the story of tightfisted Mr. Scrooge, of his long-suffering and mild-mannered clerk, Bob Cratchit, of Bobs kindhearted lame son, Tiny Tim, and of the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.
First published in 1843, A Christmas Carol was republished in 1852 in a new edition with four other Christmas stories—The Chimes, The Cricket on the Hearth, The Battle of Life, and The Haunted Man. These beloved tales revived the notion of the Christmas “spirit”—and have kept it alive ever since.
Bah Humbug That's how Ebeneezer Scrooge feels about Christmas--until the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future decide to show the crotchety old miser the error of his ways. Together they travel through time, revisiting all the people who have played an important role in Scrooge's life. And as their journey concludes, Scrooge is reminded of what it means to have love in his heart, and what the true spirit of Christmas is all about. A timeless story the whole family will enjoy
