Charles Dickens' Christmas classic-written in time for the 1843 holiday season-sold out its initial printing of 6,000 copies in one day. It remains Dickens' most widely read and best-loved work, guaranteed to warm and uplift with the simplicity of its message and the depth of its honest truths. Bah! Humbug! It's Christmas Eve and miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is in a foul temper-good cheer and joyful spending turn his very insides to vinegar. But before Scrooge sees the dawn break on yet another miserable Christmas morning, he will have come face-to-face with a parade of startling apparitions, and most disconcerting of all-himself. Dickens fills his entertaining Christmas ghost story with unforgettable characters and richly drawn settings. Veteran narrator Frank Muller provides the perfect voice for the mean-spirited Scrooge and his frightful visitors.
