This is a childrens book. It says ages 9-12, but I would say more like 5-7 or something like that. Very short version. Cute story for young children.

I've done a staged reading of this book so many times that it was nice to just sit down and read it. I love this classic tale. It's the only Dickens I've actually been able to make it through thus far. Dickens may be overly word (in my opinion) but I can't get enough of this story. I may have to make it a tradition to read it every holiday season.

I read this every year and every year I love it more and more. We all know the story, of course (if you don't know it, you must be living under a rock!), but to read the real Dickens version is a true experience. His use of detail and vivid imagery is brilliant, and you really see Scrooge's change as he experiences his past, present, and future. A Christmas delight!

Beautifully photographed gift version with ribbon marker by Barmes and Noble of this fun Christmas classic, that we learn being cheap with our fellow man does not pay and Scrooge learns to let his heart grow to love and help others.
