I was initially disappointed when it turned out that the Scrooge character was not actually a bad tempered duck wearing a sailor suit - but I guess that is what happens when people try and adapt Disney cartoons into novels.

Having gotten over the initial disappointment that this wasn't based on the original Scrooge cartoon I thoroughly enjoyed this adaptation and wish the author continued success.

That said....

I have a few points.

What did the call Tiny Tim when he grew up?

How were the Cratchett family able to cook a turkey (or goose) without a conventional oven in less than 2 hours?

How come Scrooge was named Scrooge by his parents? They were asking for him to grow up and become, well, a scrooge.

A Twat. Book Review.
