What the Critics say

Frank Scheck No humbug with this Dickens delight.
Jim Judy I found it an enjoyable, entertaining and imaginative look at the general creative process as well as the creation of ’’A Christmas Carol’’ in particular.
Tomatometer The Man Who Invented Christmas adds holiday magic to the writing of A Christmas Carol, putting a sweetly revisionist spin on the story behind a classic yuletide tale.
