Christmas Book of the Day

The Muppet Christmas Carol

Christmas is a season of peace, joy and love - but not for Ebenezer Scrooge. The meanest, greediest man in London, ScroogeĀ hatesĀ Christmas. But everything changes one snowy Christmas Eve when Scrooge receives a ghostly visit.


Over the course of that one magical night, Scrooge will come face-to-face with his past, present and future as three spirits - and a whole lot of Muppets - arrive to show him the error of his ways.


Narrated by the Great Gonzo as Charles Dickens - with a little help from Rizzo the Rat - this illustrated storybook stars Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Mrs. Cratchit and the entire Muppets cast, as they help Scrooge change his fate, open his heart and discover the true meaning of Christmas.
