Book Overview

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.

   Amazing ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Bought this item as a gift for Christmas for my girlfriend who loves NBC, it is definitely a great item for anyone who collects or loves NBC. Personally, the item came in an amazing condition, extremely quickly, the art work on this book is amazing. All around 5 keeps my girlfriend happy and that makes me happy, so thank you again!
   The Original
It is, as the title suggests, a long poem, not unlike The Night Before Christmas. The drawings are fantastic, the story excellently witty and it is a must have for all Nightmare Before Christmas '' movie fans and Tim Burton fans alike. As I say, it does differ from the movie, I can 't say that it is better because it is much more detailed and less brief, but is by no means better - just different. A funny, beautiful story all around! I highly recommend ''.
   Must buy for Jack fans of any age
Absolutely beautiful illustrations! I am so happy that I have purchased it ''. Every year I buy my son a new book and new jammies to open Xmas eve, and this is the book he will get that year. He loves the nightmare before Christmas, and I am so excited to read it to him after he opens it! The book was also shipped and delivered in excellent condition!
   A must own!
The jacket was a little dirty, but came off no problem with a light wet paper towel and then a dry one. Also ordered the paperback version because the pictures are from the movie itself and not TB artwork. I have been meaning to pick these two out and am glad that I did.
   Smudges all over book jacket
The book is beautiful, but who ships it is careless. The book jacket came all mothballed and smudged and can not be cleaned.
   Slight disappointment
I did try to wipe it off, but it did not work. The book has fun illustrations. Storyline was a bit disappointed as other reviewers mentioned. There was no Sally, no oggie boogie. Its not a terrible purchase but I expected more.
   Great story. Terrible formatting.
It is very well written and fun for my daughter to listen. More than half on the right page is cut off every time, so that on a page I can see Jack's arm but not Jack. The page where Zero guiding the sleigh is missing Zero. Not sure if I could read it with better results on a app other than Kindle, but the formatting does not work on the Kindle app.
   So beautiful. The Story is a shorter
The artwork in this book is insane. So beautiful! But such a great book is seriously such.
   The pictures are adorable and the writing flows beautifully
This is one of my old favorites. I have seen the film multiple times, but never knew there was a book involved. It is so well done! The pictures are cute and the writing flows beautifully. My three year old daughter is gonna turn over when she unwraps it on Christmas Eve and I look forward to reading it to her for many years to come.
