A Christmas Carol is the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, an old and bitter financier in Victorian London. Over the course of one night, Scrooge is visited by three spirits who take him on a journey of self-discovery and change his life forever. Charles Dickens' tale of morality is one of the world's most adapted and imitated stories, and its characters have become icons of the true meaning of Christmas. A Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens, includes dramatized narration by Paul Albertson, with on-screen displays of the text so your children, friends and family can read along, or simply listen. Illustrations from F.D. Bedford, Ethel Everett, Arthur Keller and Arthur Rackham enhance the visual presentation.
