About the Author

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and grew up in poverty. This experience influenced 'Oliver Twist', the second of his fourteen major novels, which first appeared in 1837. When he died in 1870, he was buried in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey as an indication of his huge popularity as a novelist, which endures to this day.

Michael Patrick Hearn has written for the New York Times, The Nation, and many other publications. His books include From the Silver Age to Stalin: Russian Children's Book Illustration and The Porcelain Cat; he has edited The Victorian Fairy Tale Book, The Annotated Wizard of Oz, The Annotated Christmas Carol, and The Annotated Huckleberry Finn. Hearn lives in New York City.
John Leech (1817-1864) was a well regarded English caricaturist, whose works often appeared in Punch and the London News. An accomplished lithographer and engraver, Leech's illustrations illuminated the original edition of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol

Reviews

Such a delightful work... overflowing with good nature and good will towards the humblest and most friendless of our race.--William Cullen Bryant
Who can listen to objections regarding such a book as this? It seems to me a national benefit, and to every man or woman who reads it, a personal kindness.--William Makepeace Thackeray
Read with satisfaction; presented with satisfaction, and many Christmas wishes.--Thomas Carlyle
I like and admire... the exquisite scenes about the clerk and Tiny [Tim]; I thank the writer in my heart of hearts for them.--Elizabeth Barrett Browning
The story sings from end to end like a happy man going home.... It is lyric and exclamatory, from the first exclamatory words of it. It is strictly a Christmas Carol.--G.K. Chesteron
