A #2 best-seller on Amazon’s Hot New Releases for Humor Parody. “A Christmas Carol 2: The Return of Scrooge” is a continuation of the beloved Christmas tale, that quickly goes flying off in its own comic direction. It begins five years after dear old Ebenezer Scrooge has passed away and left his thriving firm to his former clerk, Bob Cratchit. However, Bob’s overly-generous benevolence with lending and charity-giving has driven the company into the ground, on the verge of bankruptcy. And so the ghost of Scrooge returns one Christmas Eve to teach Cratchit the true meaning of money. Making the swirling journey through Christmases past, present, and yet-to-be all the more of a chaotic ride for Cratchit are the dozens of characters from other Dickens novels woven throughout the story, together for the first time. God bless them, most everyone.
“An expert updating of a classic story filled with sly wit — a pleasure to read!” — Nell Minow, film critic, The Movie Mom
“I downloaded it to my Kindle and finished reading it today…thoroughly enjoyed it! I tweeted it out this evening.” — David Perdue, The Charles Dickens Page
“Elisberg’s (I mean Dickens’s) sequel to A CHRISTMAS CAROL is witty, smart, and hugely entertaining. You don’t have to be a Charles Dickens scholar to enjoy this, but the more Dickens you know, the funnier it is. Droll and cynical and even downright magical.” — Mick Garris, Edgar-winning screenwriter/director, International Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festival Hall of Fame. The Stand, The Shining, Hocus Pocus
