Scrooge is the owner of a money lending bussiness that he had with his friend who died
7 years this very night. We then see that he has a clerk that works for him that he does
not name as he is not relevent to him at this pointof the novel. we then see how he is so
tight fisted that he will only use the smallest amount of coal to warm one room in his

undigested food. We then see how he beleves he isreal and that he is warned aabout the
three ghosts that willhaunt him to change him. we then see how he changes
througout the novel. Scroogechanges slightly all the way through and we only find out
about the stores in the market and the name of his clerk (Bob Cratchit) as this is now
relevent to him. He asks the ghost of christmas present why he sprinkles joy and good
will over the cratchits as he does not understand the effect of it.

he has feelings for The Cratchits when he finds out about
the illness of Tiny Tim and when he sees the graves at
theend of chapter four and realises the nice one is Tiny
Tim's as he is loved and thehorriable one is his as he is
not loved. At the end we see him send gifts to the
cratchits and gives him a pay raise to help with the illness
and he goes to dinner with his nephew.
