It wouldn't allow itself to be adjusted on the top bar; it wouldn't hear of accommodating itself kindly to the knobs of coal; it WOULD lean forward with a drunken air, and dribble, a very Idiot of a kettle, on the hearth. It was quarrelsome, and hissed and spluttered morosely at the fire. To sum up all, the lid, resisting Mrs. Peerybingle's fingers, first of all turned topsy-turvy, and then, with an ingenious pertinacity deserving of a better cause, dived sideways in-down to the very bottom of the kettle.

In July 1845, Dickens contemplated forming a periodical focusing on the concerns of the home called The Cricket but the plan fell through, and he transformed his idea into a Christmas book in which he abandoned social criticism, current events, and topical themes in favour of simple fantasy and a domestic setting for his hero's redemption.

Dickens gave his first formal expression to his Christmas thoughts in his series of small books, the first of which was the famous "Christmas Carol. There followed four others: "The Chimes," "The Cricket on the Hearth," "The Battle of Life," and "The Haunted Ma. The five are known today as the "Christmas Books. When things go well, the cricket on the hearth chirps; it is silent when there is sorrow.

Sweet story. Huge typo glitch on cover and fly leaf page. Reads: CRICKET ON THE HEART instead of Cricket on the HEARTH!

This is one of the few things written by Charles Dickens that I had not read. I enjoyed the book immensely!

The book company makes literature available in various print sizes. This print variations is a huge help! I can share great literature with family and friends that may need larger print. I even find it helpful for myself when my eyes are tired.

I have purchased many books by this company through Amazon and have never been disappointed in their products!

Charles Dickens books are a wonderful insight into the time in which they were written. The writing can be difficult to understand at times, but that was the language of the day. People had a misunderstanding and doubt with others that we still have today. I enjoyed the positive, cheerful ending.

This is the second OLD copy of Cricket on the Hearth I have purchased through Amazon--for my two children with new houses and fireplaces. They got the cricket and the book.

I am used to reading the Christmas Carol every year and wanted another Dickens Christmas story. I also have the audible copy and although they are not "whisper sync" they are great to follow along.

I gave a friend a bronze cricket for Christmas and she looked confused. She had never heard of the cricket on the hearth bringing good luck to the family in the house. I bought her this book to learn the story. She loved it.

Short cute tale.
Not what I expected, but good read with a simple message. Not a Christmas tale, just general everyday magic.
Another of Dicken' s tales of redemption. Dickens is always worth a read, but A Christmas Carol is the best of his series of Christmas stories.
