About the Edition

Charles Dickens, A Christmas CarolINCLUDES 'THE CHIMES' AND 'THE HAUNTED MAN'Ebenezer Scrooge is unimpressed by Christmas. He has no time for festivities or goodwill toward his fellow men and is only interested in money. Then, on the night of Christmas Eve, his life is changed by a series of ghostly visitations that show him some bitter truths about his choices.A Christmas Carol is Dickens' most influential book and a funny, clever and hugely enjoyable story.
