Book Find: "A Christmas Carol" (Part 1)
A few years ago at one of those wonderful, magical, library sales that occasionally occur, I found an old, slightly beat-up copy of “A Christmas Carol” illustrated by Ronald Searle.
“A Christmas Carol” is on a short-list of books that I am tempted to own every edition I come across (along with Dracula and That Hideous Strength) but more on that another time. In addition to being a great, brief read—ideal for reading out loud to children or family of any age—this book is wonderfully illustrated.
I need to be sure to show this and more books like it again to my artist-in-the-making children. The world needs more illustrated copies of great stories.
