Reader Reviews

A Christmas Carol
I really liked A Christmas Carol because it was a sad story of a very mean man but had a great happy ending. Charles Dickens had lots of great ideas with the ghosts showing how nasty Ebenezer Scrooge was being to everyone and how he needed to be a better man.

A Christmas Carol
I really enjoyed reading A Christmas Carol because Scrooge turned into a really nice person at the end and looked after Tiny Tim.

A Fun Christmas Read!
A Christmas Carol is a really interesting story with three spirits and a very merry Christmas ending. This is a cool book to read because it makes you think about being kind to other people.
