    Ratings

    I Understand the book for my age but there are very big vocabulary words.
    I enjoyed this book very much.

    Level of Enjoyment

    Low Medium High
    ????????????????

    In this story Scrooge is being visited by three ghosts. The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present, and The Ghost of Yet to Come.
    The message is: Do not be greedy
    I like this book because it makes a snotty old rich guy into a really nice old rich guy.
    The author wrote this book to show what would happen to children if they don't be nice.
    I learn that if you're greedy and just rely on money you will be all alone.
    The characters do change as a result of this book.
    This book is fair because everybody needs a second chance.
    This book might be believable to young children but no it can't be believable, and this story can not happen in real life.
    I like the story at the end because the old man had changed.
    I would recommend this book to other people because it gives a message to children.

    An illustrated Christmas Carol

    I have read "A Christmas Carol" every year for a number of years now.
    To read this unexpurgated version with these beautiful illustrations
    is like a cherry atop an ice cream sundae. P.J. Lynch's
    illustrations help to bring this tale even more to heart. I hope to
    pass this book on to my grandchildren. This will teach them a
    valuable lesson about keeping Christmas in their hearts throughout
    the year, and to treat evey person as a fellow traveller on life's
    highway.

    An Old Classic

    A Christmas Carol is a classic. The story, the character, the telling are all Dickens at his best. What makes this edition even better are the illustrations. They are beautiful yet with the ghosts appropriately eerie. It is a beautiful edition and makes sharing the story with family fun.

    Excellent

    This is a very mysterious book. And the play is great. I'd reccomend this book to ages 8-12. Yes. It is mysterious full of suspense. Actually that's what i've heard i want to read it.

    Wow!

    What a sad world we live in if we can't appreciate a truly magical,and outstanding story! I read A CHRISTMAS CAROL every year at Christmas. How can anyone rate it to be horrible?? Is it because we have become a society of, ' if it's not a video, it's not worth the time??' Anyway, anyone who is truly a reader and does want to be challenged, this book is worth 5 stars for an excellent story. I have read parts of the other stories, in this book,and A CHRISTMAS CAROL far outshines them, if you get the premise of the story, or want to. It is outstanding!!! I did a party/evening all based on this story,and no one complained, or felt it was a horrible story, by any means. Don't waste your time on any book if you can't handle being challenged,and entertained by truly reading something with depth. But if you are a 'true reader', as all people should be, you will not be disappointed by A CHRISTMAS CAROL. It's a wonderful Christmas story for those that have the 'creative mind, not to be bored'. You can be bored with anything if you want to be. A CHRISTMAS CAROL is not a boring story. Far from it!!
