Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
5.0 / 7.0

While not a huge Tim Burton fan myself, I do think this is a fun, beautifully illustrated book! The story is great, especially with kiddos who have just experienced and enjoyed Halloween and are now looking forward to Christmas.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.75 / 7.0

A newer classic, I appreciate how incredibly clever it is, without loving the macabre aspects, particularly around Christmas. This is better suited for Halloween than Christmas for our home.
