Review:

'The 20-year anniversary picture book of Tim Burton's anti-Christmas tale landed on my doormat and I just couldn't resist... Burton's charmingly macabre illustrations and witty gothicisms are well worth revisiting in book form, and this new edition includes a few sketches that have never been seen before.' --The Independent
