about this book

A miser learns the true meaning of Christmas when three ghostly visitors review his past and foretell his future. Ebenezer Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and to come are as much a part of a traditional Christmas as mistletoe, carolers, and candlelight processions. Also included in this heartwarming collection are the Dickens stories "A Christmas Tree," "Christmas Dinner," and the Christmas chapters from The Pickwick Papers. Since A Christmas Carol was first published in 1843, the tale of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge, humble Bob Crachit, and beloved Tiny Tim has taken a special place in the heart of our Christmas tradition. The most famous celebration of Christmas--and family love--in the English language shows us the nature of true charity, the power of tenderness and the wisdom of innocence in a cold-hearted world.
