That's what Christmas means to a grumpy old stock and station agent Ted Scrooge. He lets nothing interfere with his passion for making money - especially not the 'annual outbreak of insantity' called Christmas.

There are the three Christmas ghosts – past, present and future – who have to travel through a red dust storm instead of swirling snow. And yes there is a tiny Tim

Kel Richards is an ABC radio presenter, leading the afternoon show on weekends – and is a word guru, with his own short segment called wordwatch. His wit and humour comes through on every page as he brought alive a much loved story for me.
