We cannot go through the Christmas season without hearing exclamations of Scrooge's 'Bah Humbug ' or Tiny Tim's more good-natured 'God bless us, every one'. Charles Dickens' Christmas tales have defined the festive period and will endure for years to come.This beautifully designed treasury collates his well-known A Christmas Carol with other lesser known works, including: - The Chimes
- The Cricket on the Hearth
- The Battle of Life
- The Haunted Man Dickens was a tireless campaigner for social justice and his empathy with the deserving poor shines through in these stories, which often culminate in the change of heart of a misanthrope. Join Tiny Tim, the Cratchit family, Ebenezer Scrooge and a menagerie of wonderfully realized characters on this festive journey and remind yourself of the true meaning of Christmas.
About the Author
Charles Dickens was born into fairly comfortable circumstances in Portsmouth in 1812, but his father incurred considerable debt and was eventually imprisoned. At the age of 12, Dickens had to work in a shoe blacking factory and was only able to continue his education at 15. In 1833, he began a career in journalism and his first novel, The Pickwick Papers (1836-37), established him as an author. By the time of his death in 1870, he was the world's most popular writer.
