Editorial Reviews

Review

"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. . . . The illustrations are artistic in style and match the tone of the book."

"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."

— Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)

About the Author

Born in Portsmouth, England on 7th February 1812, Charles John Huffam Dickens was one of eight children. His father, John, worked as a government clerk, but was imprisoned during Charles's childhood due to outstanding debts. This forced Charles to support his family by going to work in a boot-blacking factory at the age of twelve.
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.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Nicola Mansfield on February 22, 2011
Reason for Reading: I was introduced to this new imprint of Graphic Novels out of India and was very impressed with their selection and often unique titles. They are distributed here in North America through Random House and I thought I would check them out. This is from their Classics line. They also have Graphic Novel lines under Mythology, Biography & Originals.

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.

Charles Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol" gets the graphic novel treatment in this adaptation by Campfire Classics. Adaptor Scott McCullar preserves the best of the dialogue, while illustrator Naresh Kumar's art gets it right, in a story about being scared straight.

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.
