Summary
Purists may object to this careful abridgement of the holiday classic, aimed at young readers who may not have someone around to read the original out loud. Mayer has retained much of the language of Dickens's work, making sensitive cuts in the text and adding lavish paintings of 19th century England
Summary
A miser learns the true meaning of Christmas when three ghostly visitors review his past and foretell his future
