Summary

Summary

Charles Dickens?s Havanese sheds light on the writing of A Christmas Carol in this Dog Diaries Special Edition! Like the Spirit of Christmas Past, Timber-aka Tiny Tim-journeys from Victorian England to the present to reveal what life was like for the man who "invented" Christmas! Given as a gift to Dickens during a book tour, small, shaggy, "ridiculous" Timber became the great writer?s constant companion. And whether sitting at Dickens?s feet while the author acted out his stories before writing them down, or entertaining Dickens?s vast litter of ten children before a blazing Yule log, Tiny Tim tells a tale as lively as a holiday jig! Featuring an embossed cover with gold foil trim, plus sixteen pages of Dickens-inspired crafts and recipes, this Dog Diaries Special Edition makes the perfect Christmas gift or stocking stuffer. With realistic black-and-white illustrations throughout and a fact-filled appendix, this is the kind of historical fiction that reluctant middle-grade readers beg for!
