Cratchit since their marriage. Suddenly Tiny Tim pointed his dear finger at what was just a moment before an empty pudding platter. They watched as the hard round shape grew and grew until it covered the entire Cratchit table. At first the little Cratchit children clapped their hands with delight. But as the hard round shape continued to swell they became very frightened.
Cratchit & Company
Soon it filled the Christmas Table. The smell of it was so thick and sweet, that the wee ones had trouble breathing. And yet it did not stop swelling and growing.
We shall all be crushed to smithereens,' cried Mrs. The manuscript goes on to describe it horrific detail what happened to the Cratchits as the pudding continued on its relentless attack. With a trembling hand I set the manuscript aside. I was tormented by the question of whether or not to release it to the public. Finally, I decided against publishing it. Why ruin Christmas for everybody?
I thought about Tiny Tim's immortal words: "God bless us everyone. Of course, Tiny Tim didn't say that in Dickens original version. What he did say was: "I never thought a Christmas pudding could kill a horse. But why dwell on that?

The Company of Players. Like Cratchit, we are not great: we are good, but liars. Both men stay true to their natures and Cratchit leaves to return home, but things are not quite as they were. The storytelling is well executed and an interesting change of POV of a well-known story. On the presentation side, and it might just be my Kindle download, I disliked the double blank space between paragraphs.
It meant I needed to click the page down button twice as often as would otherwise have been the case. In the early sections there are far too many hyphens that ought to be commas, ellipses that ought to be full stops.
Later there are some misplaced or missing commas and a few typos. On the whole the majority is beautifully done. View all 4 comments.

Something that caught my attention and which reminded me quite a bit of Dickens, was the way Gilchrist infused a bit of lightness, easing some of the more dramatic elements in the story. This is a very fun one to read. I can easily recommend it to all lovers of the classic story. Mar 17, Kanwarpreet Grewal rated it it was amazing. I loved reading this book. The author has taken characters from Dickens' "Christmas Carol" and created a very interesting story. The book is very well written and tries to preserve the style of the Dickens' original.

Did you ever want to know what happened to Cratchit during the story of A Christmas Carol? See him get judged by the same spirits that judged Scrooge? Would Cratchit be guilty of the same crimes as Scrooge? A thoroughly engaging story about what happen to Bob Cratchit on Christmas Eve Bob is dealing with the death of his son, Tiny Tim and his cruel boss Ebeneezer Scrooge.
The year is Did you ever want to know what happened to Cratchit during the story of A Christmas Carol? The year is when his life is changed by three spirits. It's a story to already know, but told from not only a different perspective, but with a modern flare. Gilchrist's Bob's is unassuming, but is is a man with fears and hard choices that feel real and similar to some our own fears and choices.
What Bob experiences, many others have experienced, whether in love or career choices. What choices he is given. And what choices he makes. I could relate to Bob Cratchit is a way I never thought of before with the classic story, as Bob is hardly a major player there.
