A Very Alternative Christmas Carol

We all know the story of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol: The mean and stingy Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come and is then transformed into a kind and generous man.

While A Christmas Carol was originally published in 1843, it's still popular and even still in print today! In fact, it's been adapted and readapted so many times that now, we probably have a least a hundred different versions of it. So why stick with the origianal A Christmas Carol? Spice it up and try one of these alternative versions this year:

For Kids:

Barbie in a Christmas Carol by Mary Man-Kong

The Animals' Christmas Carol by Helen Ward

Karen's Christmas Carol by Ann M. Martin

Dora's Christmas Carol adapted by Christine Ricci

Mr. Men A Christmas Carol originated by Roger Hargreaves

For Teens:

Batman: Noël story and art by Lee Bermejo

A Zombies Christmas Carol: In Sequential Art: Being an Undead Story of Christmas adapted by Jim McCann (pencils), David Baldeon and Jeremy Treece (inks), Jordi Tarragona and Roger Bonet (colors), Ferran Daniel and Jorge Gonzalez (letters), and Jeff Eckleberry

A Christmas Carol: The Graphic Novel script adaptation by Sean Michael Wilson, American English adaptation by Keith Howell, Mike Collins (pencils), David Roach (inks), James Offredi (coloring), Terry Wiley (letting), Jo Wheeler and Jenny Placentino (design and layout), and Clive Bryant (editor in cheif).

Happy reading and happy holidays!
