Praise For…


"Bryksenkova's illustrations add a dash of whimsy to the novella, but also serve to underscore the darkness inherent in the story.... Yet her art isn't all doom and gloom. Bryksenkova's pictures capture the delicate beauty of Christmastime with muted colors interrupted by pops of vivid reds and greens.... It isn't just Bryksenkova's illustrations that lend this version of A Christmas Carol its renewed charm. The use of the text--which alternates vastly in size--to highlight different portions of the story, such as the introduction of Ignorance and Want by the Ghost of Christmas Present, makes certain scenes even more impactful. In fact, the way the text and images intermingle is the best part of this version of A Christmas Carol." - Victorian Homes magazine
