Book By You presents your very own personalized edition of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. You and your friends can be transported back to Victorian England and meet some of the most beloved and famous characters in literature.

This classic 1843 novella starts when miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (our personalized lead character) treats Christmas as just another day to earn money, mistreat his poor clerk, Bob Cratchit, and show callous disregard for those in need. He even resents his nephew's good natured holiday wishes, famously calling Christmas a "humbug!"

On Christmas Eve, the old miser gets a ghostly visit from his late business partner, warning him that he has only one chance to change his ways. Even then, Scrooge refuses to learn. Then the true journey begins: the spirits of Christmases Past, Present, and Future each arrive to take our personalized 'hero' on a trip through his life: how it was, is, and might soon be. Can Scrooge mend his ways before it's too late?

A Christmas Carol’s emotional depth, brilliant narration and endearing characters, offer plenty of rewards for Dickensian fans, readers of all ages, and everyone who wants to keep the holiday living in their hearts all year. ...Read Less
