Marley’s Ghost

Dial, 2005

A Valentine’s Day retelling of the Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol, illustrated by Brian Selznick.

DESCRIPTION

Ben is dealing with just about the hardest thing you can think of. His girlfriend Marly has died. A life that was once filled with love and vibrancy is now gray and meaningless. When Marly and several other ghosts come back to haunt him on Valentine’s Day, Ben takes a painful journey through Valentine’s Days past, present, and future, and is forced to acknowledge that his current state of agony is not only distancing him from his friends but dishonoring the memory of Marly. Two of children’s literature’s brightest stars have teamed up to provide both a compelling novel about loss and an exciting and modern twist on an enduring Dickens classic.
