A Christmas Carol : A Ghost Story of Christmas, Hardback Book

A Christmas Carol : A Ghost Story of Christmas Hardback

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library series

Description

A major new BBC adaptation coming to your screens this Christmas. When A Christmas Carol was first published in 1843 it was an overnight success.

A celebration of Christmas, a tale of redemption, and a critique on Victorian society, Charles Dickens' atmospheric novella follows the miserly, penny-pinching Ebenezer Scrooge who views Christmas as 'humbug'.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers.

These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover.

Featuring original illustrations by John Leech, with an afterword by Anna South. It is only through a series of eerie, life-changing visits from the ghost of his deceased business partner Marley and the spirits of Christmas past, present and future that Scrooge begins to see the error of his ways.

With heart-rending characters, rich imagery and evocative language, the hopeful message of A Christmas Carol remains as significant today as when it was first published.
