Delve into the magic of Halloween and Christmas in a story told through unlikely heroes that started 30 years ago. This beautifully designed coffee-table book is sure to captivate die-hard and casual fans alike.
I have always loved Nightmare Before Christmas and how it was so different than other Disney movies. It really paved the way for so many movies and showed that Disney was not just princesses.
I’ve dressed as Sally and my husband was Jack one year and another year my daughter dressed as Sally. It is a character that we all love.
This book is great because it is a big hardcover jam-packed with facts, photos and everything Nightmare Before Christmas. I thought I knew everything about the movie but there is so much to it from the devoted fans to the merchandise available. I actually put this on our coffee table to display and its a great book to pick up and just flip thru. To us its a year round favorite but really it is perfect for Halloween thru Christmas. I would recommend this book for any fan of the movie as you will definitely learn something and enjoy all the color photos in the book.
