By now we've probably watched "Elf" half a dozen times. We always seem to cram in a watch or two of "The Nightmare Before Christmas" but the king of all feelgood family christmas movies is, without doubt, "Home Alone".
Quirk Books published a brilliant illustrated storybook by John Hughes with illustrations from Kim Smith last year, and it was a book of the week.
It's so good we thought it was well worth mentioning again this year as we reach Day 19 in our Booky Advent Calendar.
Young Kevin McAllister is a bit of a scamp - and after a particularly rowdy family argument Kevin is banished upstairs, away from the Christmas festivities.
The family is about to embark on a christmas vacation but by accident Kevin ends up left behind...
|Sometimes Christmas Wishes DO come true!!|
It's up to Kevin to singlehandedly rout the burglars, protecting the family residence! There's also a lovely heartwarming backstory about him helping out a scary grumpy neighbour with a family reunion too..
But will Kevin's other Christmas wish come true too?
"Home Alone - The Classic Illustrated Story Book" by John Hughes and Kim Smith is out now, Published by Quirk Books, ya filthy animals!
