    A good, short adaptation of the original. Good illustrations too.

    As usual with this series from Capstone, we have a fine adaptation of the original, especially for kids. At less than 70 pgs, plot elements are going to be culled here and there, however, I find Harper has done a good job of not only representing the original but deciding to shine a particular light on the theme of charity in his adaptation. The Marley sequence is good and told in detail, some graphics skimp on this part to tone down the scare but not Harper & Almara.

The Marley sequence is good and told in detail, some graphics skimp on this part to tone down the scare but not Harper & Almara. As the three ghosts come visiting not every episode from the original book is given equal importance, but I felt here they took artistic licence to first shine on Scrooge's uncharitable nature and second show how he learns that the gift of charity brings self-happiness. Very well done! One thing I particularly enjoyed was the Ghost of Christmas Past was depicted as a little candle man with his face a flame of fire and a hat that would snuff out his light when Scrooge could no longer handle the light being shone on his past deeds. Nice introduction to the classic, conversely a fun new look at it in graphic format. You usually can't go wrong with Capstone's Graphic Resolve series.

    Let it be known that I love "A Christmas Carol." I have seen many of the films and television adaptations and read it several times and in several versions. This version will not go down as one of my favorites. There are the main characters and events to be sure but there is confusion in the Cratchit household as Bob delivers both his lines, and his wife's opposing view, in a nonsensical panel or two. Most of the artwork is fine although Tim looks like a hobbit or a troll of some sort and borders Let it be known that I love "A Christmas Carol."

Most of the artwork is fine although Tim looks like a hobbit or a troll of some sort and borders on manga [which I detest] at times. Worth a read but I wouldn't want to pay for it [thank you kindle unlimited].

    My third-grader is obsessed with Dickens' A Christmas Carol -- he is writing his own version this very minute -- so he was delighted when he found this graphic novel edition of the story. I'm not entirely on the graphic novel bandwagon, but I do have to admit this book was very well done.
