You’ve heard of Christmas in July, but have you heard of The Nightmare Before Christmas in July?

This July you can pick up a brand new adorably spooky and festive tale for young readers.
Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas: 13 Days of Christmas
The Nightmare Before Christmas: 13 Days of Christmas is the perfect union of the 13 Days of Halloween and the 12 Days of Christmas.
