My Halloween novel "The Legend of Decimus Croome: A Halloween Carol" is definitely a Halloween book through and through. It mentions Christmas at the very end of the last chapter, but that's about the only Christmas reference throughout.

However, any young reader, Dickens fan or Halloween story fan would love to receive a copy of "The Legend of Decimus Croome" for Christmas, so it would indeed make an excellent Christmas gift for readers of all ages.

But since we are rapidly approaching the Halloween season, I would recommend picking up a copy of "A Halloween Carol" now rather than waiting until Christmas. It is available on Amazon.com.

Thanks again for the question!!(less)

"Three and a half stars: A cute, fun Halloween remake of an old classic.

"Great read around Halloween! Decimus hates all holidays but hates Halloween the most. He's content with no human contact and having a gloomy life. This book is based on "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. Only Halloween not Christmas. It's scary " Read more of this review »

I enjoyed this book. The movie, as usual, wasn't as good.
