Dickens and the Muppets

I am so pleased that the movie critic in his review of "The Muppet Christmas Carol," Dec. 24, stresses that Charles Dickens "deserves all the praise he received for his nearly perfect little book."

The genius of Mr. Dickens is too often forgotten. No novel has ever captured the true meaning and mood of Christmas as well as "A Christmas Carol." William Beyer, Belvidere, Ill.
