THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Meet Jack Skellington. He’s in charge of making Halloweenland the coolest creepy place around. But when Jack suddenly grows bored with tricks and treats, he goes searching for new ways to celebrate...and he finds them in Christmas Town! Christmas, Jack decides, is just what Halloweenland -- and the world -- needs! He sets out to take over the role of Santa. But can anything good come of a tall and lanky skeleton dressed up as everyone’s favorite jolly old elf? Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of the Walt Disney Company’s most successful franchises, with a huge cult following and a loyal and growing fan base. This beautiful reissue of the book first released in 1993 is a surefire Halloween, Christmas, and year-round hit! Tim Burton was born and raised in Burbank, California. He attended the California Institute of the Arts and soon after began a career as an animator at The Walt Disney Studios. After working on several films there, he began directing his own projects, and his unique creative vision has since captured the imaginations of millions of people the world over. His feature-film debut was the highly imaginative and raucously funny Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. Since then, Mr. Burton has directed such successful and highly acclaimed films as Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Big Fish and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Mr. Burton still lives in the Los Angeles area and runs his own production company. The Nightmare Before Christmas is the first book that he has written and illustrated.
