Have a Dickens of a Christmas with storytelling at its finest.
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.
In this episode we are taken through the introduction of the story to Scrooge's encounter with Marley's ghost in a rich telling with more than 80 drawings and half-an-hour 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.
Version 1.1 released.
We noticed a couple of minor fixes on 2 of the pages.
Thank you to everyone for downloading, we hope you enjoyed the free version of our app.
