Mrs. Scrooge

Mrs. Scrooge

A Picture Book by

With her husband, Ebenezer, now "doornail dead," the coldest Christmas Eve on record finds Mrs. Scrooge outside the supermarket, protesting consumerism and waste. "Spoilsport!" shout the passersby as they load up their shopping carts with Christmas goodies. Just as Ebenezer did, Mrs. Scrooge keeps to her frugal ways...but in the present economy, with loads of meaningless material goods bought on credit, maybe Mrs. Scrooge has the right idea.

That night, alone in her bed with Catchit the cat beside her, Mrs. Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. As each in succession takes her by the hand and sweeps through the scenes of her life, Mrs. Scrooge learns not only what the "Christmas Spirit" really means, but the nature of the real gifts we give and receive.
