A great introduction to Dicken's 8 Jan. 2000
By Jule Kijek - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The story of 'A Christmas Carol' is told through the eyes of Ben; a young mouse. As we see the mice story going on you can see the human counter-parts as well. The pictures are beautiful! Ruth Brown out-does herself in bringing Dickens' London on the 1800's to life. Make reading this book a part of your yearly Christmas tradition.
Children's Version of a Classic 21 Nov. 2000
By "klwalk" - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is a wonderful take on Dicken's Christmas Carol, with beautifully garbed and set Victorian mice taking the roles of Scrooge (Ben) Tiny Tim (Tim) and Jacob Marley (Jake). Ben is prooved wrong when he thinks greed will overtake Christmas spirit, and like Scrooge, learns a happy lesson in the end. For younger children, you may need to summarize - the text is complicated! But they will enjoy the basics of the story and looking at the wonderful paintings/illustrations. Since Christmas stories are a tradition, this book will be a great Christmas read for older children - ages 8-12.
A wonderful version for the children's library 2 Nov. 2013
By Cliff Cox - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was extremely pleased with this version of the classic story by Dickens. For me and my children, it had the right blend of fantasy, reality, and the moral lessons that can be gained from it. The illustrations are very well done, the language is excellent, and I find that this is one of those gems that belongs in our collection.
