Publisher's Summary

"A Christmas Tree" is perhaps best described as Dickens's "other" Christmas story, this is an elderly narrator's reminiscence of holidays past, each incident inspired by the gifts and toys that decorate the traditional tree. There is a range of appeal in the story itself, from snug memories of beloved toys to the passing along of eerie stories surrounding various childhood haunts. Ingpen renders the story quite accessible by focusing on objects of the period mentioned in the text, and by filtering the memory aspects of the telling through soft sweeps of paint.
