Warning! This is an abridged version. Get the UNABRIDGED version. A Christmas Carol is not a particularly hard read (although I have read it every Christmas for seven years and pick up something new every time) and taking anything away from the original is a travesty.
You will miss a lot of beautiful prose if you don't read the unabridged version.
A very rich classic. Might be harder for younger readers, but very interesing! It appeals to older teens, but would be a great ongoing bedtime story for younger children if they have it read to them.
