Reviews

"Delightfully illustrated . . . bursting with Blake's trademark quirky liveliness. There are many versions of A Christmas Carol out in the world; this one, which includes a foreword by the artist, is quite nice."  —School Library Journal

"The oversize format, large print and combination of both spot art and full-page images create an accessible layout for those first becoming acquainted with the story."  —Publishers Weekly
