"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."

About the Author
Although Dickens went on to receive a middle-class education at Wellington House Academy, he continued to work at the factory. These experiences of the different elements of society influenced many of the novels he would write later in life.
Dickens first published his novels as weekly or monthly serials, a common practice at the time. It helped fuel his popularity with fans who eagerly anticipated each new installment of his stories. The plight of the poor became one of the major themes in Charles Dickens's novels - a reflection of the bitterness he felt about the way working-class people lived and were treated. Charles Dickens died on 9th June 1870.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series, and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. Pre-order the official script book today. Kindle | Hardcover

Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol by Scott McCullar. Illustrated by Naresh Kumar. 72 pgs. 2010. Ages 11+. An extremely well done graphic adaptation of Dickens' classic. The book is true to the original, keeping all salient plot points as well as lesser but defining moments It also pays close attention to developing Scrooge's character over the course of the evening. In fact, I found all the characters to be well written, as at times, in other adaptations some can be over done (Christmas Present, Fezziwig, Fred, etc.) The illustrations are artistic in style and match the tone of the book. I'm not too fond of some of the facial elements but that's just me vs. the artistic style. The facial close-ups are more appealing to me aesthetically than the mid scene ones. An impressive read for my first foray into Campfire's line of Graphic Novels.
The plot is a familiar one. The selfish businessman Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by his dead partner Jacob Marley on Christmas Eve, Marley offers Scrooge a chance to avoid a terrible fate in the afterlife through the visitation of three spirits. Scrooge reluctantly accepts the offer. The visits of three Christmas ghosts will cause Scrooge to reexamine his life and reconsider his future, for very terror of the possible fate that is shown him. The adaptation conveys the message of the original novel, that even Scrooge was not beyond possible redemption. Recommended, although perhaps not to very young children.
