Review: The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge

The Further Adventures of Ebenece Scrooge
by Charlie Lovett

Publisher: Viking
Pages: 107
Format: book

Goodreads:  On a hot summer day some twenty years after he was famously converted to kindness, Ebenezer Scrooge still roams the streets of London, spreading Christmas cheer, much to the annoyance of his creditors, nephew, and his employee Bob Cratchit. However, when Scrooge decides to help his old friend and former partner Jacob Marley, as well as other inhabitants of the city, he will need the assistance of the very people he’s annoyed. He’ll also have to call on the three ghosts that visited him two decades earlier. By the time they’re done, they’ve convinced everyone to celebrate Christmas all year long by opening their wallets, arms, and hearts to those around them.

Kritters Thoughts:  Most people have read or watched an adaptation of A Christmas Carol, so to introduce a sequel is risky, but could be really good.  And this one was.

Taking place in the summer time, Ebenezer has kept the Christmas spirit since he had the memorable night with the spirits, but there are a few people around him that may need to get pinched by the spirit!  So four people will be visited by spirits and hopefully will catch the bug and hep Ebenezer spread it around.  

I liked this one and like the book from yesterday I gave it to my sister to share with her girls.  I think it would be great to experience this when you experience the original.  This was another short and simple book that although doesn't take place during the holidays can be added to your holiday reading list.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Viking.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
