Editorial Reviews

When Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol was first published in 1843, its author was pleased by the sales (the first edition sold out in six days), but disappointed by his profits. He could have scarcely imagined that his novella would continue to be a holiday bestseller 167 years later. The latest incarnation of this classic is the deluxe keepsake edition, complete with Dickens' timeless text, Chuck Fischer's evocative drawings and Bruce Foster's artfully intricate pop-up scenes of Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and all the rest. Think of it as the star on top of the tree.
