We cannot go through the Christmas season without hearing exclamations of Scrooge's 'Bah Humbug!' or Tiny Tim's more good-natured 'God bless us, every one'. Charles Dickens' Christmas tales have defined the festive period and will endure for years to come. This beautifully designed treasury collates his well-known A Christmas Carol with other lesser known Christmas stories, including:* The Chimes* The Cricket on the Hearth* The Battle of Life* The Haunted ManDickens was a tireless campaigner for social justice and his empathy with the deserving poor shines through in these stories, which often culminate in the change of heart of a misanthrope.
Join Tiny Tim, the Cratchit family, Ebenezer Scrooge and a menagerie of wonderfully realised characters on this festive journey and remind yourself of the true meaning of Christmas.
