Product description

Ebenezer Scrooge is a miserly, bitter old skinflint. He hates everyone – and it seems he’ll never change. But one cold Christmas Eve, three ghosts appear to show him the error of his nasty ways. By looking at the spectres of his past, present and future, Scrooge comes to love his fellow man, and to understand what the spirit of Christmas really means… Charles Dickens’s timeless, haunting Christmas fairytale is now paired with a new introduction from bestselling author Anthony Horowitz, the creator of Alex Rider and the Power of Five books.

    I really liked this book and how much Scrooge changes during it. He meets three ghosts who show him how he should behave and eventually he begins to change and by the end of the book is a nicer person!

    Charles Dickens is amazing, this book is excellent. Scrooge is a miser, cold and cruel, mean to everyone and everything. Even on Christmas eve he doesn’t change his ways. However, three ghosts are deciding to try and change his cold hearted ways. Will they succeed? It’s a masterpiece of a novel, with brilliant description and wonderful vocabulary.
