Product Description:

'Bah! Humbug!'

Mr 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 favour. And I hope you'd never 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...

BACKSTORY: Learn all about how the author Charles Dickens invented Christmas!

Review:

"It has it all: a spooky ghost story, a heartwarming redemption and a great plot with a satisfyingly ending" ( The Times)

"A story which, perhaps more than any other, sums up the spirit of the British Christmas" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"A little masterpiece...irresistible" ( Sunday Express)

"Marley's ghostly face on the knocker of Scrooge's door still gives me the shivers" (Michael Morpurgo Independent)

"So what makes these different to any other set of classics? In a moment of inspiration Random House had the bright idea of actually asking Key stage 2 children what extra ingredients they could add to make children want to read. And does it work? Well, put it this way...my 13-year-old daughter announced that she had to read a book over the summer holiday and, without any prompting, spotted The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas...and proceeded to read it! Now, if you knew my 13-year-old daughter, you would realise that this is quite remarkable. She reads texts, blogs and tags by the thousand - but this is the first book she has read since going to high school, so all hail Vintage Classics!" ( National Association for the Teaching of English)
