Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas
Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas: A Disney Read-Along Read by Christopher Lee | Tim Burton
117 posts | 51 read | 1 reading | 16 to read
Celebrate 20 years of nightmares with this picturebook version of the classic film, written and drawn by Tim Burton and now featuring word-for-word narration by Christopher Lee! In this beloved picture book that could only come from the visionary mind of author and illustrator TIM BURTON, we meet Jack Skellington-- a well-intentioned inhabitant of Halloweenland. Jack is bored of ''''the scaring, the terror, the fright....tired of being something that goes bump in the night''''. And so, in an effort to bring to joy to his town, Jack kidnaps Santa and takes his place as the jolly old elf. But instead of bringing joy to the world Jack, who is a little more than a grinning skeleton, brings fear by delivering creepy toys and riding a sleigh carried by skeletal reindeer. Only through a number of things going horribly wrong does Jack learn the true meaning of Christmas.

It looks like this is a matter of debate in several families. It certainly is here: Is ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas‘ a Halloween or a Christmas book/movie? Personally, I think it works as both and I like to revisit it in October as well December. I‘ve heard a lot of people say though that they see it purely as a Halloween story. What do you think? #thenightmarebeforechristmas #bookwormproblems #thebigquestionsoflife #theanswerisNOT42

julesG It works as both. Though it's a Christmas film for me this year. 1mo
DefLeppard @scripturient I have never seen this book so am very jealous but as to the debate I plonk all my nieces and nephews down at both Halloween and Christmas and make them watch it. I mean come on, it's both occasions rolled into one so it just has to be done. Poor kids are so well conditioned by now cos of my obsession with it that they actually ask when we are watching it! 😂 1mo
TheKidUpstairs I definitely see it as both. I usually watch it shortly after Halloween, but before all the Christmas stuff has started. It's the perfect transition movie 😁 1mo

My little one singing the lyrics from our very old book.
It's been there for all 3 of our kids. My son (now 17) used to read this often when he was 3 or 4 & loved singing the songs with us. He once stopped us in the middle of a song with a curious question, "Dad, does jack have a doodle?"
Awesome movie, awesome book.
My little petal wanted to dress up as Sally but with too little time to pull it together, so we went with The Corpse Bride instead.

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a TL book that transports a student reader into the alternative world of Halloweenland. The overall message of this book ranges from Collaboration, Open Communication, etc. Jack Skellington is bored of scaring & wants to spread cheer, so he arranges Santa‘s kidnapping to replace him. By the end, Santa helps Jack realize that Halloween is the right place for him.

I was hoping to see some Halloween swaps posted over the weekend. Since I didn‘t I decided to host one. The #NightmareSwap is a Halloween swap.

Matches sent the 15-20th. Open date Halloween.

This is in country ONLY. If there are not 2 people from your country, I will not be able to match you.

For the most part this is a random swap.

Kids and teens welcome.

Feel free to share.
