Charles Dickens' "The Cricket on the Hearth", performed by his great-great-grandson, Gerald Dickens...
A Dickens short written specifically for Christmas, "The Cricket on the Hearth" beautifully combines Dickens' masterful critique of social ills with a typically captivating narrative. In the Peerybingle family house, a cricket constantly chips, and acts as their guardian angel. Then, one day, a mysterious, elderly stranger takes lodge with the family.
Complete and unabridged, this is a must-buy for Christmas, and will bring to your family the festive cheer and seasonal warmth only Dickens could provide.

This is a wonderful little treasure from Dickens. Narrator is also a Dickens and does a great job.
Never heard of this till I stumbled across it on Audible and I'm glad I purchased it.
Not long but very enjoyable!
