Charles Dickens’s holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, is given a fresh twist—with a female Scrooge! Rod Espinosa (The Courageous Princess) adapts and illustrates this story of the miserly Eliza Scrooge, who is visited by the ghosts of the past, present, and future on one fateful Christmas eve.
Out of all the Xmas classics, A Christmas Carol has always been my favorite, and The Night That Changed the Life of Eliza Scrooge is a great variation. The story is very well paced and does a wonderful job of including all the key points you’d expect to see. I really felt that everything which needed to be included to make this a good adaptation was there.
All in all I really could not find anything that I wasn’t pleased with in this book.
Anyone that enjoys Christmas stories, especially A Christmas Carol, should definitely add this to their collection. Rod Espinosa certainly changes up the well known tale, but still keeps true enough to the original to honor it. Even if you don’t read this during the holidays, it’s one you will enjoy.
