"In this beloved picture book that could only come from the visionary mind of author and illustrator TIM BURTON, we meet Jack Skellington-- a well-intentioned inhabitant of Halloweenland. Jack is bored of "the scaring, the terror, the fright....tired of being something that goes bump in the night." And so, in an effort to bring to joy to his town, Jack kidnaps Santa and takes his place as the jolly old elf. But instead of bringing joy to the world Jack, who is a little more than a grinning skeleton, brings fear by delivering creepy toys and riding a sleigh carried by skeletal reindeer. Only through a number of things going horribly wrong does Jack learn the true meaning of Christmas." -Goodreads.com
|I adore this movie. Upon seeing this on Amazon and learning it was a children's story book I had to get it. I loved reading this charming, creepy book. It's everything I love in the movie. The illustrations are beautiful, Tim Burton is a very talented artist.|
I'm so happy to have this apart of my library. I think I'll be re-reading this at both Halloween and Christmas.
5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley.
