DICKENS, C.: Christmas Stories (Unabridged)

Charles Dickens was a major contributor to the Victorian romantic revival of Christmas traditions. With their heart, humour and good morals, Dickens’s Christmas stories have made the author’s name synonymous with the season. Here we present four charming novellas to complete his series that began with A Christmas Carol, with echoes of sleigh bells throughout.

The stories include The Chimes, The Cricket on the Hearth, The Battle of Life and The Haunted Man.
