Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle.

An incredible adventure is about to begin!

Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, and Ebenezer Scrooge come to marvelous life in Patrick Stewart's critically-acclaimed solo interpretation of A Christmas Carol. The star of X-Men and The Royal Shakespeare Company, Stewart has performed his one-man stage production of this holiday classic to sell-out audiences.

This is s great first book. Anyone with an interest in zombies, or just a well written book with interesting characters, will love this book. The type of book where you will immediately go "I want to get book two."

Compliments to the narrator for brining the characters to life.
