A Christmas Carol
By Charles Dickens
Scrooge is an old man that gets grumpy around Christmas time. He doesn't have any family or friends, and he thinks money is the world. Jacob Marley is a ghost that Scrooge used to be good friends with, he also had chains on him with cash boxes, padlocks, and keys. He looked the same as he did when he was alive. Bob Cratchit is described as ugly, poor, and he is treated poorly by Scrooge. Fred was cheerful, generous, and kind-hearted.
