An unkind, mean, lonely old man gets a surprise when he reaches the front door of his home on the night before Christmas. As he looks at the door knocker, it turns into a face ów the face of a friend who has been dead for many years!

This is just the beginning of a long night in which Ebenezer Scrooge talks to his dead friend, and meets three other ghosts. The first two show him Christmas in the past and the present. The third lets him see what might happen in the future.

Find out what Scrooge saw, and whether or not it made him change his ways.

Charles Dickens was a very popular writer who lived in England in the time of Queen Victoria. Many of his stories are about children, and the hard lives of poor people in those days.
