God-Bless-Us-Everyone_CoverBOOK DESCRIPTION:

As Charles Dickens Dipped his pen and began to write the classic tale A Christmas Carol in the autumn of 1843, the spirit of the story captured his heart and mind in an extraordinary way. Dwindling sales of his previous books had resulted in a desperate financial situation for Dickens, who had used much of his income to support worthy causes and needy family members. But the book which he had intended as a quick solution to his problems turned out to be much, much more.

This beautifully illustrated volume tells the story behind the writing of Dickens’ most famous work and reveals how he discovered the spirit of Christmas for himself–with a little help from his own literary characters. Originally presented by acclaimed British actor John Rhys-Davies at the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s 2013 Christmas concert, the book also includes a DVD with footage from the event.

John Rhys-Davies is one of modern cinema’s most recognizable character actors, best known for his role as the ax-wielding dwarf Gimli in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. He has gained widespread fame on British television and received an Emmy Award nomination for his work in the television miniseries Shogun.

Brandon Dorman is the illustrator of the New York Times bestseller The Wizard. His work has appeared in children’s books and on numerous covers, including the Fablehaven series and The Candy Shop War.
