Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In this version of Dickens' classic tale, there are no ghosts—just the Spirit of Christmas, and no one dies, certainly not Tiny Tim. Ebenezer Scrooge is a gruff old goat, literally, and Bob Cratchit is a sweetfaced mouse. No explanation for Ebenezer's miserliness is given, and his change of heart doesn't quite have emotional punch either. The illustrations are marvelous. If you don't mind the homogenization of the original tale, the book may be a fun introduction to the idea of "Christmas spirit" for the youngest audience. 2000, BridgeWater Books/Troll, Ages 3 to 7, $15.95. Reviewer: Dr. Judy Rowen
