    In this novel by Charles Dickens, Ebenezer Scrooge gets a visit from three spirits, The ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet To Come. Before this, though, coldhearted Scrooge gets a visit from his nephew, and at the door to his home, he sees the face of his deceased miser friend, Jacob Marley on the doorknob. Ebenezer is terribly frightened. Marley's ghost tells Scrooge he is getting a visit from the three spirits. Ebenezer is greeted by the ghost of Christmas past. Here, Scrooge sees himself as a schoolboy, at a ball with Mr. Fezziwig, and with a dear love. When the ghost of Christmas present arrives, he sees Bob Cratchit and his children, Martha, the young ones, Peter, and Tiny Tim. Tiny Tim is a cripple, with his tiny body supported by an iron frame, and a little crutch. Now, when he is visited by the ghost of Christmas yet to come, Scrooge sees his own gravestone, and tiny Tim's family weeping, because the poor boy dies. But, Ebenezer is prepared to change, and Tiny Tim lives, and 'God bless us, every one!'

        this was a great book that I enjoyed.It's a bout a rich man named Ebenezer Scrooge that is bitter and mean especially during the christmas holiday.Then the ghosts of christmas come and whip him into shape.It's a really good book and a christmas favorite for me.I like the muppets version too.
