A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

Summary

"Bah humbug! What do I care for Christmas?" sniped Scrooge.

This is the snow-laden story of Scrooge, a mean miser, who is determined to think only of himself - and his money.

That is, until he is visited by three Christmas spirits, and the true meaning of Christmas starts to work its magic on him, too . . .

This classic and beloved story has been beautifully retold by Kristina Stephenson and atmospherically illustrated by Hoang Giang.
