By visiting his past, present and future, will Scrooge learn to love Christmas and the others around him?
Praise for A Christmas Carol (Puffin Chalk)

It has it all: a spooky ghost story, a heartwarming redemption and a great plot with a satisfyingly happy ending—The Times
A story which, perhaps more than any other, sums up the spirit of the British Christmas—Sunday Telegraph
One of the great achievements of British culture—D.J. Taylor
But that story endures and retains the power to move us because it speaks to the human heart, and gives us hope when hope is fading—Tony Parsons, Mirror
