Описание: In October 1843, Charles Dickens heavily in debt and obligated to his publisher began work on a book to help supplement his family's meager income. That volume, "A Christmas Carol, "has long since become one of the most beloved stories in the English language. As much a part of the holiday season as holly, mistletoe, and evergreen wreaths, this perennial favorite continues to delight new readers and rekindle thoughts of charity and goodwill. With its characters exhibiting many qualities as well as failures often ascribed to Dickens himself, the imaginative and entertaining tale relates Ebenezer Scrooge's eerie encounters with a series of spectral visitors. Journeying with them through Christmases past, present, and future, he is ultimately transformed from an arrogant, obstinate, and insensitive miser to a generous, warmhearted, and caring human being. Written by one of England's greatest and most popular novelists, "A Christmas Carol" has come to epitomize the true meaning of Christmas."
Learn how Christmas is celebrated around the world by coloring 30 pictures, among them vignettes of young carolers in Great Britain, Mexican children playing under a pinata, a Swedish girl wearing a traditional crown of candles, Greek children parading with drums and triangles, and an Australian family picnicking on a beach. There are also scenes of youngsters decorating a "tree of light" in China, French children leaving shoes for Pere Noel to fill, Americans hanging stockings on the mantle and leaving Santa milk and cookies, Polish children looking at the North Star, and 21 other illustrations. Each scene appears with an informative caption.
