The Birds' Christmas Carol: Dramatic Version (Classic Reprint) by Kate Douglas Wiggin


Excerpt from The Birds' Christmas Carol: Dramatic Version

In the present arrangement the birth of Carol is depicted in a sort of fairy prologue, in which the welcome gift of the Christmas baby to the Bird household is shown in a series of pictures.

As to the death of the Christmas child twelve years later, it is touched upon very lightly in the original story and retired still farther into the back ground in this dramatic version. An imaginary Doctor Bob has been introduced, one of a long line of physicians who have tried to deliver the child from the burden of her weakness and her crutch; and the last scene of the play suggests to the audience none but healing thoughts. The Angel of the Pro logue comes softly to Carol in her happy sleep, lifts the crutch and vanishes with a smile. The curtain goes down on a peaceful picture the merry chatter of the Ruggles children on their homeward way, mingling with the Christmas music that drifts into the big house from the church next door.
