Description


A beloved Christmas title—with illustrations from Hans Christian Andersen Award recipient Lisbeth Zwerger!

Old miser Scrooge doesn’t like Christmas. He’d rather spend his time making more money. But on Christmas Eve, he is visited by four apparitions . . . One of them is his late business partner and only friend, Marley. Marley makes it very clear to Scrooge that if he doesn’t change and become a better person, he will forever suffer in the afterlife. Terrified by the ominous messages from the ghosts, Scrooge is determined to change. But is there time? 

Back in print—with a brand-new cover and extra vignettes—this beloved Christmas story by Charles Dickens paired with Zwerger’s inventive and whimsical illustrations make this a treat for collectors and the whole family alike.

About the Author


Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, England. The writer and publisher was one of the most important representatives of literary realism of the 19th century. With his humorous and socially critical works, he illuminated the social problems of his time. Dickens became world famous with his literary works Oliver TwistDavid Copperfield, and A Christmas Carol.

Lisbeth Zwerger has been accorded nearly every prize that can be given, including the highest international award for lifetime achievement, the Hans Christian Andersen Medal. Since 1981 she has devoted her extraordinary talents to children’s literature, to stories as charming and picturesque as her native Vienna. Always surprising, always engaging, her artwork combines technical mastery with an insight and gentleness so rare and captivating that she has been correctly called one of the finest illustrators of the twentieth century.
