Charles Dickens's heartwarming winter tale... with guinea pigs in the starring roles!
Miserable to the core and wholly unwilling to celebrate Christmas, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge says `Bah! Humbug!' to the festive season. But then one chilly night he is visited by three Spirits, who take him on a journey through time so he can learn the error of his ways and discover the true meaning of Christmas.
A Guinea Pig Christmas Carol Hardback edition by Charles Dickens
CHARLES DICKENS was born in 1812 and he has gone down in history as one of the most well-loved novelists in English literature. His book A Christmas Carol was an instant bestseller when it was published in December 1843 and the first edition sold out on Christmas Eve, appropriately enough.
TESS NEWALL was born in 1987 and when she is not making guinea-pig-sized spectacles or sprinkling snow on the streets of Victorian London she works as a freelance set designer, specializing in fashion shoots, window displays and decorative interiors. She lives in London.
ALEX GOODWIN was born in 1985 and he has an MA in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia. Some people have noticed that much of his writing comes to the length of a medium-sized shopping list; this is explained by the fact that a picture of a guinea pig says a thousand words. He lives in London.
