It is the story of John Peerybingle and his family who are visited by a guardian angel in the form of a cricket who is constantly chirping on their hearth. A delightfully fantastic story, The Cricket on the Hearth was the best-selling of Dickens five Christmas books and is a perfect little tale for the Christmas holiday season.
Charles Dickens was an English writer and social critic. The setting of The Rattle of Life is an English village that stands on the site of a historic battle.
