Journal Entry 1 by wingeponine38wing from Winchester, Massachusetts USA on Thursday, December 06, 2018
Interesting take on Scrooge's wife after his death.

A witty modernized re-telling of the classic Christmas Carol story: Starting with “Scrooge doornail-dead,” Carol Ann Duffy’s elegantly witty take on the Dickens tale, like the Ghost of Christmas Past, takes the reader by the hand through the snowy streets of London and through the touching untold romance of one of literature’s most recognizable characters, Ebenezer Scrooge—through the eyes of his widow, Mrs. Scrooge.

• A rare, uplifting moral tale: As in A Christmas Carol, Mrs. Scrooge learns from the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come that the gifts we give to others—including the gifts of love and time spent together—are the most important and memorable. A charming moral for the holiday season, transposed to the present day and spiced with Duffy’s wry references to our struggling economy—conditions that make anyone feel scrooge-like.

• Fresh original work with beautiful illustrations: Mrs. Scrooge combines the melodious language and accessible, cheeky wit of one of the UK’s most popular living poets with endearing full-color drawings by beloved illustrator Beth Adams. A natural successor to the poetry book The World’s Wife that put Carol Ann Duffy on the map ten years ago, this highly giftable book is a gorgeous package for her poem with illustrations enlivening the text.
