Christmas Eve Magic: Inspired by Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol (Hardcover)
Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol is one of the most enduring holiday stories ever written. Inspired by this masterpiece, Lucie Papineau's text and Stephane Poulin's art make for a striking new interpretation.
Barton, a very spoiled and snobbish young pig, hates Christmas. The smell of freshly baked gingerbread, the sound of the homeless orphans' joyful caroling outside his door, the stars shining atop Christmas trees -- Barton hates it all. Sulking in his mansion on the hill, Barton hoards his many toys and counts the hours until Christmas is over. But as he lies awake on Christmas eve, Barton receives an unexpected visitor who shows him his life -- past, present and future -- in a magical new light.
