The Book Snob Mom's Rating

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.

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.
