Here’s a review from one of our Undercover Readers—just in time for Christmas!
Quentin Blake’s A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, ill. by Quentin Blake. ISBN 9781843651215, Anova Books.
In this book, a crotchety old man, Ebenezer Scrooge discovered the true meaning of Christmas. But only after he is haunted by three ghosts!
It is written in an old-fashioned style but I like it, it’s a really good story. I especially love the illustrations. Quentin Blake is a great illustrator. My favourite illustration is the Ghost of Christmas Present because he looks a bit like Santa Claus.
I think that 9 to 99 year olds would like this book.

I can pretty much guarantee Philippa is correct about the 99 part because I like the book already and I am close to 99.
I did not want to read the Christmas carol because I thought it will be scary but now that you’ve told me that the illustrations is by Quentin Blake I want to read it. Thanks Philippa! It’s great. Maybe I will still read it at 99 years old if I’m still alive!
