Once upon a time – of all the good days in the year, on Christmas Eve…
Bob Cratchit and Ebenezer Scrooge are busy preparing for their holiday celebration. Five years have passed since Scrooge’s miraculous transformation, the strange circumstances of which no one could ever quite account for.
But when Scrooge fails to make his annual appearance at Fred’s dinner party, everyone is alarmed. Nephew Fred, Bob Cratchit, his son Tim, and Martha Cratchit’s fiancé Daniel set out into the grip of a snowstorm to locate Mr. Scrooge. Their journey will take them right into one of the darkest slums of East London, as they discover what it truly means to Keep Christmas Well.
Peppered with original drawings by Samuel Morgainne Blight, Jason C. McDonald’s original sequel to A Christmas Carol recaptures the whimsical voice of Charles Dickens, with a message that is as fresh and relevant today as it was 175 years ago.

Hey Jason, and Anne... It's Pam, we met outside of our local B@N. Just thought I'd pop by to say... I JUST finished "Finding Scrooge", and I LOVED it! The overall story was a joy to read, and you REALLY did your research. The characters are VERY well thought on, and I was HOOKED! Looks like I am going to have to purchase more of your books. :) All in all... Well done! :)
I have been a Dickens collector for over 35 years and my favorite book is 'A Christmas Carol'. I had the opportunity to read Jason McDonald's 'Finding Scrooge: Or Another Christmas Carol' last night in a couple of hours and to say Jason has done a superb job with this novella about Dickens and his family, friends and colleagues after his one night experience with the 3 Spirits. This is a well researched, well presented book in the "Dickensian" style which is presented from the point of view of his nephew Fred as the entire family, including Bob Cratchit (it is now Dickens and Cratchit!) and his family are supposed to get together on Christmas Day for a feast. Fred, Bob, Tim and Daniel search the Old Nichol for Scrooge after he does not come to dinner. What happens, I will leave to your imagination until you have the pleasure of reading Jason's book. I highly recommend this excellent, emotional and well written book to everyone! This from a member of the Dickens Fellowship and Dickens Society!
