In this familiar Christmas tale originally published in 1843, Dickens masterfully tells the story of tight-fisted Ebenezer Scrooge and his four ghostly visitors. A challenge to all to grasp and implement the joys of a generous life as opposed to self-centered stinginess. Truly a classic worth re-reading. From the book:

Originally published in 1843, the Penguin Puffin Classic printing uses large, easy-to-read print type and is complete and unabridged. Iintroduction is byAnthony Horowitz, glossary, and notesThis book is part of Hewitt’s Grade-8 Lightning Literature program (See Related Items below). From our Guide by Elizabeth Kamath:

During Dickens’ life, the gap between rich and poor in England was immense. Dickens used his novels, essays, and public speaking opportunities to speak out against injustice to the poor. He used the same tools to attack American slavery, something which made him unpopular in the United States. But Dickens felt strongly about these social ills and was determined to do all he could to correct them.

A Christmas Carol is somewhat different from most of Dickens’ novels. For one thing, it’s shorter. Also, although it does address the issue of compassion, particularly for the unfortunate, it does so in a gentler way than some of his other works.
