A Christmas Carol is the first book in the Dickens Trilogy of language-illustrated classic novels.

Description

The MCT edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is reproduced in its entirety and includes Michael’s “language illustrations”—close-ups of poetic techniques, four-level analyses of interesting grammar, and comments about writing strategies. Challenging vocabulary is defined at the bottom of each page.

This is the classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformation from odious miser to caring friend. Michael writes that the novel “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.” Its lessons have touched readers for more than a century.
