Product description

The ultimate Yuletide fairy tale. No plum pud till you’ve read it! Christmas? Bah, humbug! Ebenezer Scrooge is a miserly old skinflint. He’s horrid to everyone. The spirit of Christmas? Forget it. But then three ghosts pay him a visit. One shows him Christmas past. One shows him Christmas present. And one shows him an eerie Christmas future. It’s like a horrible nightmare that Scrooge desperately wants to wake up from. Can he change his nasty ways before it’s too late?

  • A classic Charles Dickens festive treasure
  • Ghosts, forgiveness and the joy of Christmas
  • One of the greatest Christmas novels ever
  • The perfect first introduction to Dickens
