    PadWorx Digital Media, which recently released an impressive interactive version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula for iPad (Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition), has announced today that it will be bringing a gorgeous version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to the iPad, just in time for the holidays.

    Not only will readers get to witness Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformation in the 130 pages of abridged text, they will also get to feel like a part of the story with their interactions, such as turning the key in Scrooges’s door and seeing the door knocker change into the ghost of Jacob Marley, or trying to clean the grime of industrial-era London off the “pages†of the book. The steampunk-style animation, illustrations, original score and sound effects will captivate readers in tandem with the story’s unforgettable images and themes. The app even has the seal of approval from the author's descendents, with the following resounding endorsement from Mark Charles Dickens on behalf of the Dickens family:

    No word as yet on pricing on release date for the iPad version, but you can be sure to expect it in the run up to Christmas. An iPhone version will also be released shortly after the iPad app.
