Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol with Adam McKeown - ADVISABLE

McKeown, Adam (retold by) Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol, illustrated by Gerald Kelley.  Doubleday (Random), 2015.  PICTURE BOOK.  9780553511994

McKeown has done a skillful job of editing the classic Christmas story to fit within a picture book.  In my heart, however, I wish Kelley’s beautiful illustrations were attached to a fully illustrated version of the unabridged story.  As it is, it is a good length to read at one sitting.
GIFT – ADVISABLE; EL – OPTIONAL.  Cindy, Library Teacher
