Books were in excellent condition. Dickens has always been a good Christmas story. Tells of times past that were hard times.

This is a combo book and recording of a dramatization of Dicken's "A Christmas Carol" with a cast led by narrator Charles Laughton and orchestral music written by Frank Worth. When I was growing up we had an ancient copy of this with two 78 RPM records - it was scratchy but we loved listening to it and following along with the book and the beautiful artwork, every Christmas. It's abridged from the original, certainly, only about 16 minutes long, total (4 minutes a side!), but the emotion of Laughton's voice is the reason to listen to it. The reason I came across this listing was that I was transferring those old 78s to a CD, and was curious if it is available. This is the only reference to this recording I could find. This is a gem!

This is a great family friendly book to read around christmas. A valuable lesson is taught in the novel. This story of redemption is great for children. However with a sick child, ghosts, and Scrooge being threatened with death, some children might be afraid if you read the story to them.
