Rediscover a classic with a striking audio visual app of Charles Dickens’ masterpiece A Christmas Carol – Drawn & Told.
It features the wonderful story-telling voice of Christian Rodska and is further enhanced by beautiful and haunting images from critically-acclaimed illustrator Michael Cole.
While at least 28 film versions of the enchanting tale have been made, nothing beats hearing the literary genius’s own words and the atmospheric, full-colour illustrations highlight the story of miserable miser Scrooge’s journey from darkness and despair to the true joy of Christmas.
We are taken through the story, from Scrooge on Christmas Eve to his encounters with the ghosts of Marley, Christmas Past, Present and a Future Yet To Come - meeting his nephew Fred, Bob Cratchit andTiny Tim along the way - to the up-lifting finale, in a rich telling with more than 300 drawings and nearly two hours of narration.
The story and images can be browsed or left to play, to allow you to enjoy the glory of Dickens' wonderful tale in whichever way you choose. There are simple controls to find chapters, swipe control or touch presses to take you through pages, and your place is remembered when you pause the story.
This project has been a labour of love by all involved and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have making it.
