Summary

A Christmas Carol is one of Charles Dickens' best-loved tales. Published in 1843, it is the first, and best known in his series of "Christmas books," five novellas with strong social and moral messages that he published during the 1840s.

Ebenezer Scrooge, described as "a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner," is certainly no lover of the Christmas season.

He is visited on Christmas Eve by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley, who warns him that he will be visited by three further spirits: The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come.

A heart-warming story of one man's redemption, populated with many memorable and well-loved characters, which also offers a wonderful glimpse of mid-19th Century Christmas traditions.
