Ebenezer Scrooge is unimpressed by Christmas. He has no time for festivities or goodwill toward his fellow men and is only interested in money. Then, on the night of Christmas Eve, his life is changed by a series of ghostly visitations that show him some bitter truths about his choices. A Christmas Carol is Dickens' most influential book and a funny, clever, and hugely enjoyable story.
Each of these five short stories was written specifically for Christmas, and is infused with tremendous vitality as Dickens combines his concern for social ills with the myths and memories of childhood and traditional Christmas spirit-lore. The very words "Merry Christmas" were first coined in "A Christmas Carol", the first of these books, which has become a touchstone of English Christmas fiction, and an enduring favourite the world over. Издание на английском языке.

This finest of all Christmas stories is beautifully illustrated with Arthur Rackham's superb line drawings. Издание на английском языке.
