Christmas comes but once a year so celebrate it in style with A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Tales, a collection of classic stories and poems that commemorate the yuletide season. Abundantly illustrated with the work of Arthur Rackham, Jesse Willcox Smith, and other titans of the Golden Age of Illustration, the book features the full texts of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol and E. T. A. Hoffmann’s “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” as well as stories by Louisa May Alcott, Washington Irving, L. M. Montgomery, Katharine Harrington, and B. McLoughlin.
Of course it wouldn’t be Christmas without “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” and this volume includes, in addition to that timeless classic from Clement Clarke Moore, a selection of poems by Wilbur Nesbit, Gladys Hyatt Sinclair, Harriet Prescott Spofford, Helen Standish Perkins, and others.
So trim the tree, hang the stockings, and deck the halls! A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Tales is the perfect accompaniment to all of the holiday’s festivities, with stories and poems that will appeal to readers young and old and continue to delight and entertain into the new year and beyond.
