This carefully crafted ebook: “The Birds’ Christmas Carol (With Original Illustrations)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The story is about Carol Bird, a Christmas-born child, who as a young girl is unusually loving and generous, having a positive effect on everyone with whom she comes into contact. She is the youngest member of her family and has devoted older brothers. At about the age of 5, Carol contracts an unspecified illness (possibly tuberculosis), and, by the time she is 10, she is bedridden. The novel primarily involves Carol making plans for a Christmas celebration for the nine Ruggles children, a poor, working-class family living near the Birds. The book is a wistful moral tale about a saintly child, but is enlivened by many humorous scenes, particularly those concerning the home life of the Ruggles family. Kate Douglas Wiggin (1856-1923) was an American educator and author of children's stories. She started the first free kindergarten in San Francisco in 1878. Kate Wiggin devoted her adult life to the welfare of children in an era when children were commonly thought of as cheap labour.

„Der Romancier mit dem dramatischen Genie.“ Die Zeit Der Besitzer des Raritätenladens, der alte Trent, verschwindet täglich gegen Mitternacht und kehrt erst im Morgengrauen heim. Warum lässt er die kleine Nell in der unheimliche Umgebung alter Rüstungen, rostiger Waffen, Fratzen aus Porzellan und anderer verstaubter Gegenstände mutterseelenallein zurück? Was wollen der hässliche Gnom Quilp und der rücksichtslose Frederick Trent von ihm? - Wie Figuren aus einem Panoptikum ziehen eine Vielzahl merkwürdiger und skurriler, boshafter und liebenswürdiger Gestalten an uns vorüber, die alle mit dem Schicksal der tapferen Nell und ihres hilflosen Großvaters verknüpft sind. Dieses Schicksal treibt die beiden auf der Flucht vor skrupelloser Geldgier und heimtückischer Intrige aus dem Raritätenladen und hetzt sie auf einer beschwerlichen Wanderung ziellos durch Stadt und Land. Am Ende verlassen die kleine Nell jedoch die Kräfte, und sie vermag nicht mehr, gegen die Widrigkeiten des täglichen Lebens anzukämpfen. Als schließlich die Gerechtigkeit trotz alledem ihren Lauf nimmt und Güte und Barmherzigkeit den Sieg davontragen, ist es für sie zu spät. „Der große viktorianische Erzähler.“ Die Welt „Die ganze Welt scheint irgendwie lächeln zu müssen, wenn Dickens sie betrachtet.“ Stefan Zweig

Generations of readers have been enchanted by Dickens's A Christmas Carol--the most cheerful ghost story ever written, and the unforgettable tale of Ebenezer Scrooge's moral regeneration. Written in just a few weeks, A Christmas Carol famously recounts the plight of Bob Cratchit, whose family finds joy even in poverty, and the transformation of his miserly boss Scrooge as he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. From Scrooge's "Bah!" and "Humbug!" to Tiny Tim's "God bless us every one!" A Christmas Carol shines with warmth, decency, kindness, humility, and the value of the holidays. But beneath its sentimental surface, A Christmas Carol offers another of Dickens's sharply critical portraits of a brutal society, and an inspiring celebration of the possibility of spiritual, psychological, and social change. This new volume collects Dickens's three most renowned "Christmas Books," including The Chimes, a New Year's tale, and The Cricket on the Hearth, whose eponymous creature remains silent during sorrow and chirps amid happiness.
