Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-5?This adaptation conveys the flavor of the classic story but does not capture its spirit. The production has a textbook look, with introductory notes, captions below the many paintings, and old-fashioned watercolors that seem too bright for this mysterious, wintry tale. The abridgement uses a lot of Dickens's prose, but is choppy. (Use of colons is suspect throughout.) Much superior, if a shortened version is needed, is the edition illustrated by Scott Cook that was abridged by Dickens himself (Random, 1993; o.p.).?AC

About the Author

Born in Portsmouth, England, in 1812, Charles Dickens became one of the most widely read and dearly beloved authors the English language has yet known. Throughout his career, he used his fame and reputation to support institutions that helped the poor, to promote improved public education, and to encourage the wealthy toward charitable giving.

This book features the art of Russ Flint. This abridged edition of Christmas Carol comes alive with his vivid watercolors. Flint has illustrated dozens of childrens books. He lives in Northern California with his wife.

Format: Hardcover
There are 28 editions available on this webiste alone for the familiar"A CHRISTMAS CAROL". The one illustrated by Russ Flint, published by Ideals is the one I recommend. Unique, brightly designed layout is a nice change from the usual classical and somewhat gloomy approach. The huge yellow "BAH HUMBUG" is just right.
