Twenty-one charmingly rendered scenes accompany Dickens's own abridged version of the tale, which he read to delighted audiences of his time. Among the illustrations are ready-to-colour vignettes of Marley's ghost confronting a terrified Scrooge, Christmas dinner with the Cratchit household, the ghosts of Christmases past, present, and future, and many more. A perfect stocking stuffer for the holiday season, this entertaining and fun-to-colour book will captivate youngsters - and colourists of all ages - throughout the year.
