Original Title: The Cricket on the Hearth: A Fairy Tale of Home This is a short novel written by Charles Dickens as a Christmas book for 1845 but published in 1846. The title creature is a sort of barometer of life at the home of John Peerybingle and his much younger wife Dot. When things go well, the cricket on the hearth chirps; it is silent when there is sorrow. Tackleton, a jealous old man, poisons John"s mind about Dot, but the cricket through its supernatural powers restores John"s confidence and all ends happily.
