Includes character guide, book quiz, author info, how Dickens invented Christmas, Victorian games, and a glossaryMr. Scrooge is a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, miserable old man. Nobody stops him in the street to say a cheery hello; nobody would dare ask him for a favor. And no one had better be so foolish as to wish him a "Merry Christmas!" Scrooge doesn't believe in Christmas, charity, kindness—or ghosts. But one cold Christmas Eve, Scrooge receives some unusual visitors who show him just how very mistaken he's been.


"Marley's ghostly face on the knocker of Scrooge's door still gives me the shivers."  —Michael Morpurgo, author, War Horse
