Description

A Christmas Carol is the third novel of the Michael Clay Thompson Time Trilogy. 

Thompson provides close-ups of poetic techniques, four-level analyses of interesting grammar, and comments about writing strategies. They all focus on the author’s writing technique while still keeping the child's mind on the book itself.

Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol was first published in England a week before Christmas in 1843. The short novel helped to restore public interest in the holiday and its celebrations. A Christmas Carol ignites the reader’s sympathy for people who survive at society’s edges. It condemns mercenary and industrial indifference to human suffering and celebrates the goodness that is possible in all parts of society, although it does not overly idealize the downtrodden: Dickens includes disreputable and predatory characters from the poor ranks also. A Christmas Carol  celebrates the ability of the individual to change for the better.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 26, 2009 – Helquist's vision of the classic story depicts a hawkish Scrooge (who's a cadaverous shade of green) against a backdrop of bustling Victorian streets, with pleasing touches of detail, humor and a few frightful strokes. When the clock strikes one, announcing the arrival of the first ghost, the moon hangs in an unholy green sky, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come stands in a tattered cloak, surrounded by eddying mists (but also draped with strings of Christmas lights). The eye-catching art makes a strong pairing to the accessible abridgment of Dickens's text. Ages 5 up.
