With an exclusive introduction by Peter Ackroyd, these out of print editions are brought back to life with a fresh and timeless new look.

After the success of A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens' name became so synonymous with Christmas that on hearing of his death in 1870 a young girl in London asked, "Mr. Dickens dead? Then will Father Christmas die too?" But A Christmas Carol is just the most famous of his Christmas stories, and those contained here in this unforgettable collection - The Cricket on the Hearth, The Battle of Life and The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain - show Dickens at his heartwarming best.
