A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic (Hardcover)
A delightful Christmas storybook for adults based on the action-packed Die Hard movie
All John McClane wants for Christmas is to reunite with his estranged family. But when his wife’s office holiday party turns into a deadly hostage situation, he has to save her life before he can get home in time for Christmas!
The unconventional fan-favorite movie Die Hard is now an illustrated storybook—complete with machine guns, European terrorists, and a cop who’s forced to rely on all his cunning and skills (and the help of a fellow officer) to save the day. Based on the classic “Night Before Christmas” poem and filled with whimsical illustrations, this cleverly reimagined homage is destined to become a holiday classic.
*Contains adult material including violence and strong language. Reader discretion is advised. Ho-ho-ho.

“A very amusing and nostalgic way to cement the fact that Die Hard and Christmas go together in a weirdly cheerful way.”
