My Review:

I tried reading A Christmas Carol last year but i struggled to get into it, i suppose it was the language difference. I was keen to read it as so many stories adapt the original and i wanted to see where they derived from, alas at the time, like i say i just couldn’t get though it.

I really liked this search and find version of the book, not only did it give a very very shortened version of the story- think basically ‘this happened, then this happened, then this happened’- it also was completely and utterly beautifully visual. The artwork suits it well and is lovely, every page is a real delight.

I think this book is a great introduction to Charles Dickens classic tale and it has made me want to try reading the original again, while appreciating this book at the same time.

Megan is a prolific reader, having been reading since she was just 1 years old, Megan is never without a book in her hand or her heart. At just 5 years old Megan challenged herself to read 365 books in a year but finished in just 10 months! She has always been keen to grow her library at home and is a frequent visitor to our local library. Megan may have read 365 books in 10 months when she was a pipsqueak 5 year old but she was reading every day before that and every day since! We estimate that she is well over the 2000 book mark and nothing is slowing her down yet! She is a keen supporter of literacy and authors alike. Now she is older she hopes to give her reading challenge a boost by reading at least twice as many books in a year. Megan generally reads several times a day and as her parents we are read out a lot of passages from books!! :-) Megan is a keen reviewer and has decided to share her journey through books with other book minded people. She is also a member of a chatterbooks group where she is given a book (or 3) to read and review for the next gathering. She is confident in her approach to what she has read, what she likes and dislikes, and she has no problem expressing those feelings with other booklovers.
