Summary (From the publisher):

G.K. Chesterton wrote that Charles Dickens's "greatest work may yet prove to be the perpetuation of the joyful mystery of Christmas." A Christmas Carol is one of Dickens's best works and among the most widely read stories of all time. This popular tale created a universal figure: the unforgettable Scrooge, the inveterate miser who learns the meaning of love.

The heart of A Christmas Carol is Scrooge's relationship with his underpaid clerk, Bob Cratchit. Cratchit is exploited, but this does not turn the Cratchit family against Scrooge—and this Scrooge is unable to understand. Just as the name of Scrooge has grown to mean a "miser" (the word sounds a bit like "squeezing" or "grasping"), the word Cratchit sounds a bit like "crutch." The Cratchit's child, Tiny Tim, is a lame but loving soul, a lamb Scrooge must learn to comfort. Only then will the spirit of Christmas truly descend into the world.
