The classic Christmas tale by Charles Dickens captures the spirit of Dickens's beloved tale in a richly illustrated unabridged edition. Illustrated by the two-time Kate Greenaway Medalist P.J. Lynch. (The Kate Greenaway Medal is the equivalent of the Caldecott Medal in the United States–given to the best childrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s book illustration.) This sumptuous title is one to savor and treasure for many Christmases to come.
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 specters 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.
Depending on your childrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sensitivity level, this is good for children from about age 10 on up.
Suitable for ages 10+
