'Mean old Ebenezer Scrooge hates everything. Even Christmas! Until, one frosty Christmas Eve, Scrooge receives a visit from three ghostly spirits, who whisk him away on a magical journey through past, present and future... but can they melt his frozen heart before it's too late?'

This book was absolutely beautiful.

I am a massive fan of Charles Dickens' much-loved Christmas tale, and as such, I was extremely excited to get my hands on this book.

Tony Mitton has done a fantastic job with retelling this classic tale. The rhyming story and the way the text has been condensed makes this the perfect book to read aloud with young children to introduce them to the true meaning of Christmas.

The captivating illustrations by Mike Redman combine perfectly with Tony Mitton's text to add a magical feeling to this book. I can definitely see this becoming a much love Christmas book in many homes.

The combination of Tony Mitton and Mike Redman has captured this timeless story and the spirit of Christmas in a truly beautiful and accessible children's book.

I honestly don't have a bad word to say about this book.

If you have a young reader in your life, make sure you get them a copy of this wonderful book.

Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol by Tony Mitton, Illustrated by Mike Redman, is a must have for all households this festive season.
