A Christmas Carol
Illustrated by Arthur Rackham
A Christmas Carol is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London by Chapman & Hall on 19 December 1843. The novella met with instant success and critical acclaim. A Christmas Carol tells the story of a bitter old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge and his transformation into a gentler, kindlier man after visitations by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come.
The book was written at a time when the British were examining and exploring Christmas traditions from the past as well as new customs such as Christmas cards and Christmas trees. Carol singing took a new lease on life during this time. Dickens' sources for the tale appear to be many and varied, but are, principally, the humiliating experiences of his childhood, his sympathy for the poor, and various Christmas stories and fairy tales.
A Christmas Carol remains popular-having never been out of print-and has been adapted many times to film, stage, opera, and other media.
Love, it seems, is transcendental. At least that's what Monique ("Momo") and nine-year-old Tutor Moot think after discovering beautiful and serendipitous connections between their herd of Yorkshire terriers that they breed and sell, and the people the little terriers choose as their owners. A comforting tale of life lessons, everlasting love, and evidence that nothing is ever happenstance, Yorkshire Pudding, set in 1969, is the year in a life of a mother-daughter duo that discovers their unique bond-both personally and through struggles of the era. Momo and Tutor together learn about themselves, their community, and society's discriminations. Yorkshire Pudding not only invites readers into the lives of a single eccentric mother and her precocious daughter, but also into the lives of a handful of very diverse neighbors, all of whom are changed forever when the Moot puppies come into their lives. Having lost her husband while pregnant with Tutor, Momo tries desperately to create a family for her expectant child. The dog breeding business has a lot more to offer than income, she soon finds out, as the loving disposition of their Yorkshire terriers fills the void of loss. A small neighborhood is the backdrop for six people longing for a second chance at life, happiness, and perhaps a little closure. When fate intervenes, each of them finds that an unexpected gift can be found in a most unusual reincarnated package, as a little puppy. Yorkshire Pudding serves up a whimsical, celestial tale that will resonate with any reader who has ever loved a dog. Big on inspiration, this heavenly little story will melt the heart and bring sweet tears to the eyes of anyone who believes that dogs do smile and have souls-and it will make you smile the next time you see a dog wag its tail.
