    One thought on “The Nightmare Before Christmas”

    1. I got this for Christmas today from my sister and decided not to waste any time. I've embarrassingly never seen The Nightmare before Christmas film (I know guys! I'm behind on the times.), but I still found myself really enjoying this story! I have no idea if it's the same story as the film, but it was still great. You can never go wrong when Tim Burton's involved. ;)

    2. This book was great and the artwork was beautiful! None of my students had ever heard of this story before, so it was really fun to read it to them. They really got into it!

    3. Un imprescindible para todo seguidor de Tim Burton y fan de la película. Ilustraciones bellas, góticas y poesía ligera. Lástima que se perdiera la rima en algunas estrofas.

    4. It was late one fall in Halloweenland,And the air had quite a chill.Against the moon a skeleton sat,Alone upon a hill.He was tall and thin with a bat bow tie;Jack Skellington was his name.He was tired and bored in Halloweenland-Everything was always the sameFun book about a Halloween skeleton called Jack who decides to kidnap Santa and take his place. The presents he brings to the children are however a bit creepy. so it's not a success that's the essence of the story. Drawings are brilliant. Th [...]

    5. "Nightmare Before Christmas" es, sin lugar a duda, una de las películas que encabeza mis favoritos para disfrutar durante mis dos fechas predilectas: el Halloween y la Navidad. Cualquiera que haya visto la película seguramente habrá notado que la historia combina ambas celebraciones de una forma muy particular, de una manera muy Tim Burtonesca, con esos aires góticos y personajes lóbregos pero de gran carisma. Y si bien ya había leído el poema anteriormente, no había tenido la oportunida [...]

    6. This is the same premise as the movie and it's also very different than the movie. Sadly for me, Sally is not in this book. She is the best. Oogie Boogie is also not in this book. It is still fantastic and is great for small kids who the movie will scare. Tim Burton did the story and illustrations so it's a work on its own merit. He takes Twas the Night before Christmas and he use that to tell some of the story. It works really well. I love the art work in this book. I want to own this book! It' [...]

    7. Burton can rhyme ! beautiful illustrations that did justice to his own workhave to watch this again.Gorgeous little book. On off topic, looking forward to the Song of the Sea book. update : the Song of the Sea Artwork is now available, Yah!

    8. It was late one fall in Halloweenland,And the air had quite a chill.Against the moon a skeleton sat,Alone upon a hill.He was tall and thin with a bat bow tie;Jack Skellington was his name.He was tired and bored in Halloweenland -Everything was always the same.My mommy bought me this. And I obviously love it, it's one of my favourite movies. And I love her.Love. Love. Love. Love.Ps.: Where is Sally though 😭

    9. Me ha encantado, nos cuenta la hidtoria de Pesadilla antes de navidad escrita en forma de poema. Y los dibujos preciosos. Perfecto para leerlo todos los años por este tiempo.

    10. Me encanta Pesadilla antes de Navidad. Por ese motivo me regalaron esta Navidad este libro. Las ilustraciones son preciosas, y el poema nos hace rememorar muchos momentos de la película. Eso si, este libro tiene grandes ausencias, como la de Sally o la de Oogie Boggie. La traducción del castellano deja bastante que desear. Si lo vais a leer os recomiendo hacerlo en inglés, su versión original.

    11. Toda a gente que visite com alguma frequência este blog, sabe que sou doida pelo meu querido Jack. Quando este ano passei na feira do livro de Lisboa e vi este pequeno tesouro a um preço mais acessível, não hesitei em comprar.A história aqui contida é a de um esqueleto que é o mais famoso da sua terra, Halloween, mas que está cansado de andar sempre a assustar e a fazer traquinices e sente a necessidade de algo novo. Numa das suas deambulações encontra um conjunto de árvores que são [...]

    12. To bolo milé. Navštívil světničkuZuzky a Josky, a dal jim plyšáčky s vyhřezlými mozky.K Janičce Novákůzaskočil nahonem, a dal ji panenkuposedlou démonem.

    13. It is definitely a simplified version of the movie, which is fine for what this is for. There's no mention of Oogie Boogie, no romance with Sally. There are no main characters besides Jack Skellington, Zero, and Santa. But since it is a short picture book it's cute, and of course it's always a good thing when you get to see Tim Burton's original drawings; the man is a freaking morbid genius.

    14. I’ve loved the movie for years. My daughter has loved it since before she was 2. We just read this and it’s amazing!!! I love this story so much!!

    15. Re-read October 2017: Kicking off my Halloween reads! Just as magical as the first time. First read November 2016: "but then, like a dream, Santa brought Christmas to the land of Halloween."I adore The Nightmare Before Christmas and watch it every Halloween and Christmas. This beautiful 20th anniversary edition was released in the US in 2013 and has finally hit shelves in the U.K. and Ireland this year.I really, really enjoyed this beautiful poem and the ILLUSTRATIONS. So gorgeous! I could spend [...]

    16. La película de Henry Selick siempre tendrá un lugar especial por acá, pero después de leer esto, es difícil no darse cuenta de lo mucho que palidece al integrar a su trama un villano y un interés amoroso. No es que estén mal (porque, de hecho, son personajes más que memorables), pero se pierde la simpleza e inocencia de aquel poema original donde Jack únicamente quería llevar a todos la alegría de la navidad. Al igual que "La melancólica muerte de Chico Ostra", hermoso a más no pode [...]

    17. Υπέροχη αιρετική χριστουγεννιάτικη ιστορία με εξαιρετική εικονογράφηση!

    18. Jeden si holt musí projít nějakou cestou a zkušeností, aby zjistil, co vlastně má a proč si toho váží.

    19. First and foremost I shall admit that I am a full blown fan-geek of Burton's and Nightmare is my all time favourite movie so I was bound to love this (just so you know). This is the original Nightmare story before it was extended and expanded to the movie story we all know and love (don't we!?) and tells the simple tale of Jack Skellington and his search for something to fill the void that he feels. Of course, things don't quite go to plan and Jack finds himself in a bit of difficulties and us h [...]

    20. Corinne gave this to me for Christmas 2014 and I really love the illustrations and the commemorative edition elements (Tim Burton added a few illustrations and did some fun and whimsical things to it, so I really loved that part). I really love how Burton draws and especially how he draws Jack with really, really long skinny legs - it's so great! Problems with it? The typeface (I know this sounds really weird) really bothered me and seemed to clash with the whimsical, haunting story. Also, no Sa [...]

    21. This beautiful rerelease of Tim Burton's 2013 20th anniversary book came unexpectedly in the post today and I'm absolutely in love with it. Anything Tim writes and draws is beautiful, and this has made my day.

    22. I don't think young children will enjoy the drawings and the dark colours as much as older people, but it's still a fun and curious story, Burton style.I love the morbid atmosphere mixed with innocence and fun moments. Recommended!

    23. Se acaba de convertir en uno de mis libros favoritos.Y si os gusta este mundo de Tim Burton tanto como a mí, tiene que ser un imprescindible en vuestras estanterías.

    24. Já conhecia a história por ter visto o filme, foi curioso encontrar agora o livro, com as ilustrações do realizador. Fiquei com vontade conhecer o texto original.

    25. Krásná jednohubková publikace, krásný překlad (navíc jde solidně i "do huby" při čtení nahlas; snad jen je tam příliš "starobásnických" obratů na knihu pro menší děcka), krásné ilustrace, ale Ale je to tak ohlodané na samou dřeň, že to nemá hloubku ani srdéčko. Což je oproti filmu ani ne tak krok jako spíše zběsilý úprk zpět.

    26. I absolutely adore the film so when I saw that Tim Burton had released the book of the film 20 years after the film first came out, I had to get a copy! The story, slightly different from the film, is presented in rhyme which makes it all the more enjoyable! The illustrations are intricate and beautifully presented. Definitely a book to share with your class in December!
