Quentin Blake’s A Christmas Carol


Quentin Blake’s A Christmas Carol is the perfect interpretation of Dickens’ timeless classic tale.  Not only is it an unabridged version of the original story, it of course features luminous illustrations by the master.

The story is very familiar.  The mean-spirited miser Ebeneezer Scrooge is visited on Christmas Eve by the ghosts of Christmas past.  They show Scrooge the misdemeanours of his ways and their impact on the family of his clerk, Bob Cratchitt.  Dickens’ story is sometimes spooky, but always rewarding. No matter how many times the story is read, the message of peace and love comes shining through.  Quentin Blake’s illustrations perfectly compliment the story.

This is the perfect Christmas gift!

Quentin Blake’s A Christmas Carol

Charles Dickens, with a foreword and illustrations by Sir Quentin Blake


Quentin Blake’s A Christmas Carol is a beautiful edition of the timeless Christmas classic. It is the perfect gift for the season of giving.
The incomparable Quentin Blake applies his artistic talents to Charles Dickens’ much-loved Christmas story. There have been a huge number of interpretations of the classic tale, on screen, stage and of course in print. This sumptuous edition perfectly encapsulates and defines the Christmas spirit.
The story is of course totally familiar.  Ebenezer Scrooge, a mean-spirited miser, is visited by three ghosts one Christmas Eve. The ghosts show to Scrooge the consequences of his mean-spiritedness, particularly the impact upon Bob Cratchitt and his family.  The ghosts also show the true value of Christmas: charity, good humour and love for his fellow man. It hardly goes without saying that Sir Quentin’s colourful illustrations are as equal to Dickens’ prose.  They guide the reader through Scrooge’s lively journey to find the meaning of Christmas.
This is an unabridged edition and contains a foreword by the illustrator.  It is quite simply the ultimate Christmas gift book.
Bookwagon is pleased to stock many other Christmas classic tales, such as Dasher and Harvey Slumfenburger’s Christmas Present.
