Description
The two-time Kate Greenaway Medal–winning illustrator of The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey here captures the spirit of Charles Dickens' classic Christmas tale in a richly illustrated unabridged edition. Nearly every two-page spread is embellished with subtly hued, superbly rendered watercolors by P.J. Lynch—whether as an inset view, a colored background that becomes an image at the edge, a full-page plate, or a sweeping two-page scene with a decorative border—beautifully depicting the redemption of Ebenezer Scrooge through the power of three Christmas spirits. This handsome edition features a gold-stamped spine, heavy pressed page stock, and maroon endpapers.

"Over the years, Dickens's holiday classic has been embellished by some of the finest artists around. Michael Foreman, Trina Schart Hyman, Greg Hildebrandt, and Lisbeth Zwerger are just a few of the luminaries who have taken on the challenge originally set by Arthur Rackham in 1915. Joining the list is Lynch, whose watercolor-and-gouache illustrations lavishly enhance this handsome edition, which includes the complete text. Ranging from spot art to full spreads, with something to savor on almost every page, they offer a real flavor of Victorian England and make the most of the inherent drama of the story."—School Library Journal
