A Christmas Carol (Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Press Series) by Charles Dickens

London 1843 few know any leisure, and Christmas has all but been forgotten...

...Enter Charles Dickens and his "Ghostly little book," in which he invents the modern concept of Christmas Spirit and offers one of the world�s most adapted and imitated stories. We know Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, not only as fictional characters, but also as icons of the true meaning of Christmas in a world still plagued with avarice and cynicism.

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary and reader�s notes to help the reader fully appreciate the beauty and humor of Dickens�s work.
