The Children’s Book Blog Christmas Countdown: The Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton, Arts

The Children’s Book Blog Christmas Countdown: The Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton

For December I’ve decided to turn the children’s book blog into a sort of literary advent calendar. Every day of the month I’ll be posting a short recommendation of a wintry or Christmassy children’s book to warm your cockles or, in some cases, chill the blood. There’ll be something for readers of all ages, from picture books all the way up to YA. My choice for Christmas Eve is Tim Burton’s ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’.
