A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, was published in 1843, and has become one of his best-known stories. Scrooge is an old miser who lives alone in his could house by night and torments his assistant at work by day. One evening, just before Christmas, he is visited by the ghost of his old business partner – a ghost with a very important warning... Essential Classics is a wonderful new series that offers a quick way into a range of exciting stories. Fast-moving and accessible, each story is a shortened, dramatically illustrated version of the classic novel, which loses none of the strength and flavour of the original.

I am a collector of A Christmas Carol. This book was very modern and mostly in artform that reminded me of the anime comic books my son buys. It was a great new piece for my collection and also a great gift for the tween reader to get them into the spirit of Christmas. Read full review
