Rate this:
The premier edition of this celebrated masterpiece. Decorated initials, tailpieces, and six full color plates by Trina Schart Hyman. Note on the text. 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. The characters mice, rabbits, a reptilian Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come will draw the youngest pre-Dickensian into the story. The gloomy mood of Scrooge's Christmas Eve gives way to warm, welcoming tints the morning after he is visited by the three Spirits and has learned his lesson.
