The Nightmare Before Christmas Book by Tim Burton - Review

Hi lovelies! At the end of September a very special email landed in my inbox from the lovely @xpectopatronerd at Penguin Random House Children's UK, advertising advanced copies of a Nightmare Before Christmas picture book and as a huge NBC fan I jumped at the chance!

I have to admit I'm a bit of a terrible Disney fan as I had no idea that the screenplay of The Nightmare Before Christmas was based on a poem by Tim Burton! The book of it was previously only available in America but now Penguin Random House have been able to re-release it over here, complete with some new illustrations!
Everything about this book is downright magical. Both the story and drawings are simple but so spellbinding in that classic Tim Burton style. I could sit and stare at that picture above of Jack falling into Christmas Town forever. And those end papers! If you get your paws on this book then make sure to check out the subtle little addition on the end papers at the back!

This beautiful book would definitely make the perfect Christmas gift for children to treasure forever or a Disney/Tim Burton fan of any age. It certainly felt like Christmas day to me when this arrived at my door!
It was truly fascinating to see the origins of the film we've all come to know and love so well! Thank you so much Penguin Random House Children's UK!

This book was kindly sent to me by the publishers but all the thoughts in this review are my own!
