Charles Dickens’ brilliant comic adventure of a lamplighter, Tom Grig, who is called into the house of an eccentric astronomer who is searching for the philosopher’s stone. He declares that the stars have foretold that Tom will marry the astronomer’s niece and inherit the secret of the philosopher’s stone, which will make him the richest man on earth.

Unfortunately, this good fortune will be time-limited, as the stars have also forecast Tom’s death in exactly two months. But the niece, the astronomer’s son and daughter, together with their maid and the laboratory assistant all have other ideas … with hilarious consequences.

About the Author

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
