Description


The timeless tale by Charles Dickens is now an illustrated storybook for children with Kid Classics: A Christmas Carol.

Humbug! On a cobblestone street in London, on a cold Christmas Eve, the wealthy, greedy Ebenezer Scrooge is staying late at work at his “counting-house,” keeping his clerk, poor Bob Cratchit, busy and cold and away from his family. But little does Scrooge know that his old business partner, Jacob Marley—dead for seven years—is about to pay him a ghostly visit! His intention: to warn Scrooge that three spirits, the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future, will be soon coming to see him, in order to convince him to change his ways before it’s too late! As Scrooge comes to see the mistakes he’s made, as only the three spirits can show him, he realizes that nothing is better than being loved by his family and his fellow people. In this gorgeously illustrated instant-hardcover classic, the true meaning of Christmas is brought to life!

Kid Classics: A Christmas Carol gives kids a chance to read Dickens’s classic short novel at their reading level—and come away with a greater appreciation for the spirit of Christmas!

Maïté Schmitt was born in a little town near Strasbourg in France, close to the German border. Her love of old animation movies inspired her to study illustration and animation.
