9780553511994: A Christmas Carol

Now even the youngest readers can enjoy Charles Dickens’s classic Christmas tale in this beautifully illustrated picture-book version of the holiday favorite, simpler to read but with all the magic of Dickens’s voice preserved. Follow miserly Scrooge as he is whisked through the night by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come in order to face his selfish treatment of Jacob Marley, Bob Cratchit, and Tiny Tim. Families will enjoy reading this shortened version of Dickens’s story together, with its warm illustrations that capture every twist and turn.

"All the key elements of Dickens’s seasonal ghost story remain intact in this skillful adaptation. McKeown streamlines the story while remaining true to the language and eerie aspects of the original."—Publishers Weekly

"would make a fine read-aloud for an elementary-age group or a useful introduction before attending the play. . . . The lessons Scrooge learned are still valuable and worthy of passing along to younger readers, who can meet these famous characters and learn the origin of the oft-quoted 'Humbug!'"—Kirkus

"the full pages of engaging watercolor and digital media illustrations effectively take readers into the scenes of regret, past merriment, and, finally, redemption. . . . An appropriate choice for a family read-aloud or for newly independent readers."—School Library Journal

About the Author:

Adam McKeown has taught literature and writing at Tulane, Princeton, Adelphi, and New York University. He is the author of several adaptations of classics for young readers, including a picture book retelling of A Christmas Carol (Doubleday), and has taught Shakespeare in both Africa and the Middle East. He is a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, and he has been deployed twice in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

GERALD KELLEY received his BFA from Texas Tech University and is the illustrator of My Name Is Bob by James Bowen and Garry Jenkins (the picture-book version of the New York Times bestseller A Street Cat Named Bob). Charles Dickens is one of his favorite writers, but Gerald doesn’t much care for gruel. He lives in Denver, Colorado.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–5—"Jacob Marley was as dead as a doornail" and "God bless us, every one!" familiarly make up the first and last lines of this otherwise pared-down take on the classic story. The picture book format leaves little room for exposition, as Scrooge is succinctly introduced as a "hard-hearted, greedy old miser" and Marley skips the niceties when his ghostly form appears in favor of immediately announcing the three hauntings in store for Scrooge that Christmas Eve. The sadder and scarier plot points—Fan's death, Scrooge's broken engagement, and the stolen bed curtains—are also edited out. Still, the lessons of the story are easy to find, and the full pages of engaging watercolor and digital media illustrations effectively take readers into the scenes of regret, past merriment, and, finally, redemption. VERDICT An appropriate choice for a family read-aloud or for newly independent readers.—Joanna Fabicon, Los Angeles Public Library
