 +===== Description =====
 +**The Cricket on the Hearth** is a Christmas-themed novella by Charles Dickens, originally published in December of 1845. [[directory:​l:​librivox|]] offers two recordings of the story. ​
 +<​blockquote>​The tale of John Peerybingle,​ the good-hearted carrier, and his young wife Mary ('​Dot'​),​ interwoven with the story of poor toymaker Caleb Plummer, his beloved blind daughter Bertha, and the harsh old toy merchant Tackleton, who is due to marry May Fielding, a childhood friend of Dot. Comic relief is provided by Tilly Slowboy, the disaster-prone nursemaid of John and Dot's baby, and Boxer, the family dog.
