Synopsis:

Imagine: What if Scrooge, Marley, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, and the whole Cratchit family had smartphones? A classic is reborn in this clever adaptation of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol!

One grouchy old man who can't stop asking "How did you get this number?!"
Three ghosts who communicate in the most modern ways, including one who ONLY uses emojis!
And a status update with the most "likes" ever: God bless us, everyone!

This retelling will cure even the worst bout of Bah hummingbird! #darnyouautocorrect

My rating: ★★★★☆

A Christmas Carol, one of the holiday's greatest traditions told... in texts?!

The first OMG Classic I read was a Greek mythology one, obviously (I love mythology, okay? Lol), and I absolutely loved it so I went back and bought more books in this series! And this one was just as fun! This is basically the classic A Christmas Carol story with a modern twist... and emojis! Lol.


As I said it was a lot fun and a very short read! I love all the emojis and the shorthand text and just the way the story is told. It’s mostly in text message form, with a couple of posts thrown in. I loved the writing and the way each character had their own voice. I don’t read a lot of classics, if I’m honest, but reading those classics in this form... yes please! I’m all about that! I am really looking forward to reading more of these books!

  4. The layout of this book with the emojis and texting language would be great (and relatable) for a young teen!
