Classical Comics' graphic novel adaptation of Dickens' classic story of the transformation of Ebeneezer Scrooge following a Christmas Eve visit by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come, comes in two versions: original text and quick text. Both have the same illustrations, both cut out the much of the description of what is happening , but the original text version cuts keeps the original dialogue, this one – the quick text version – has “reduced dialogue for easier reading” in more modern English.

The graphic novel follows the story line well, and will appeal to graphic novel fans. However, the text is too abridged for my taste (although it may appeal more to younger readers). The original text version is a better adaptation, and will be a better choice for those who love the original. The book also includes supplementary material such as a Dickens timeline, information about Victorian England, and character descriptions. ( )
