Christmas Carol

Show Synopsis

'Bah,'said Scrooge, 'Humbug.' But that was before he was presented with visions of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come, which gave him a whole new lease of life: 'I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a schoolboy. I am as giddy as a drunken man. A merry Christmas to everybody! A happy New Year to all the World!' Old Ebenezer Scrooge is too mean to spend money on coals for the fire in his counting-house, where his clerk Bob Cratchit shivers in the winter cold. ...

Downright ugly book.

I wanted a Rackham-illustrated edition of Christmas Carol, and though this would work. My error. I have no idea who "Chump Change Books" is, but their company name is about all they got right. This is cheesy, ugly, ill-composed with tiny print and the illustrations shoehorned into the pages.

perfect for the holidays

Like so many others, I've seen the Muppets version of this, but somehow, I'd never gotten around to reading it. Of course, when I found out that Tim Curry narrates this on Audible, I knew this was the year I'd finally rectify that. He narrated this classic tale so fantastically, and it's the way I would absolutely recommend consuming this book. I imagine it'll be a go to for now on during the holiday season.

Go for it

Books were in excellent condition. Dickens has always been a good Christmas story. Tells of times past that were hard times.

classic recording-book

This is a combo book and recording of a dramatization of Dicken's "A Christmas Carol" with a cast led by narrator Charles Laughton and orchestral music written by Frank Worth. When I was growing up we had an ancient copy of this with two 78 RPM records - it was scratchy but we loved listening to it and following along with the book and the beautiful artwork, every Christmas. It's abridged from the original, certainly, only about 16 minutes long, total (4 minutes a side!), but the emotion of Laughton's voice is the reason to listen to it.
The reason I came across this listing was that I was transferring those old 78s to a CD, and was curious if it is available. This is the only reference to this recording I could find. This is a gem!
