Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister wished his family would disappear. He never thought the wish would come true!Home Alone arrived in theaters twenty-five years ago, and remains the #1 highest-grossing live-action comedy film of all time. Now, illustrator Kim Smith has reimagined the story as a classic Christmas fable--complete with bumbling burglars, brilliant booby-traps, and a little boy named Kevin who's forced to fend for himself. Through a series of comic adventures, Kevin learns lessons about responsibility and the importance of family. With an amusing read-aloud story and enchanting, immersive illustrations, this charming adaptation can be enjoyed year after year alongside The Polar Express, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and other Christmas storybook classics.

The illustrations are fantastic and the real highlight of the book. The art is so cute and fun and full of personality, it's a shame the writing doesn't match that or quite capture the joy of the film it's adapting. It comes close but it reads more like a summary than its own narrative. Just because it's a children's picture book doesn't mean it has to lack spark. Still, a really delightful piece to flip through for fans of the movie or the holiday itself and a nice way to introduce kids to or enrich their experience with the film.
