LoveReading View on Quentin Blake's a Christmas Carol

Best-selling illustrator Quentin Blake brings fresh appeal to Charles Dickens’s classic Christmas story in this lovely edition. He captures the essence of the miserable Ebenezer Scrooge who would like to live without kindness, charity, love and especially Christmas which he hates particularly because it involves spending money. But everything changes for Scrooge when he is visited by a succession of ghosts who make him see the error of his ways. Now Christmas can come alive and Ebenezer Scrooge is transformed. The warmth of the newly found Mr Scrooge is especially delightfully captured by Quentin Blake. ~ Julia Eccleshare
