Gr 2-4–During another “Merlin Mission,” Jack and Annie are sent back in time to Victorian England, where Charles Dickens is suffering from writer's angst and has vowed not to pen another book. After posing as chimney sweeps in order to gain entry to his house, the two children use magic to conjure up the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future in order to convince Dickens of the value of his work and to inspire him to write A Christmas Carol. Fans of the series won't be disappointed in this tale, which nicely combines action, atmosphere, magic, and bits of humor in a stepping-stone format.Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library
