BOOK REVIEW: Home Alone: The Classic Illustrated Storybook by Kim Smith


Home Alone arrived in theaters 25 years ago, and it 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.

I like this book, it was very good. I also love the Home Alone movies! 

This book was about Kevin and how he didn't go with his family for their Christmas vacation. He ended up home by himself and having defend to defend his home from scary burglars. 

My favorite character was Kevin because he is so sneaky, just like me. The pictures in this book are amazing! 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for anyone that likes the Home Alone movies!
