A Christmas Carol is a holiday classic, but the story didn’t end with Ebenezer Scrooge. He truly left a legacy behind when he found Christmas in his heart, as we see in this charming sequel from Norman Whaler titled Tiny Tim and the Ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge – The Sequel to A Christmas Carol. Tiny Tim is all grown up, thanks to Ebenezer’s kindness, but life has taken yet another tragic turn for the young man. The future he hoped for is taken from him in adulthood and he finds himself forgetting his former blessings and falling into despair. He doesn’t have Christmas in his heart as he goes to bed one night, tired from a hard day’s work, to be woken by none other than the ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge! In true Dickens fashion, Tiny Tim is shown how his actions have impacted others for good despite his downturns, and encouraged to continue showing kindness to all people, and not giving up on doing good.
A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite holiday stories, so I was thrilled to find this sequel. Even though it’s a children’s tale, I was intrigued to find out how Scrooge’s legacy panned out in this charming story and was thrilled to see that he not only kept Christmas in his heart but passed it on to the next generation. It was also great to see Tiny Tim all healed and grown up, and to see the impact he was having on the world. The story is supplemented with beautiful narration and lovely scriptures and Christmas carols to make this book a delight not only for children but for adults as well. Norman Whaler did an excellent job in continuing the tale. I highly recommend Tiny Tim and the Ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge – The Sequel to A Christmas Carol for the entire family!
