Book Review - Long Live the Pumpkin Queen

Long Live the Pumpkin Queen

About the Book

In Long Live the Pumpkin Queen read Sally’s story in this young adult sequel to Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas written by New York Times bestselling Shea Ernshaw.

Jack and Sally are "truly meant to be" ... or are they?

Sally Skellington is the official, newly-minted Pumpkin Queen after a whirlwind courtship with her true love, Jack, who Sally adores with every inch of her fabric seams -- if only she could say the same for her new role as Queen of Halloween Town. Cast into the spotlight and tasked with all sorts of queenly duties, Sally can't help but wonder if all she's done is trade her captivity under Dr. FInkelstein for a different cage. But when Sally and Zero accidentally uncover a long-hidden doorway to an ancient realm called Dream Town in the forest Hinterlands, she'll unknowingly set into motion a chain of sinister events that put her future as Pumpkin Queen, and the future of Halloween Town itself, into jeopardy. Can Sally discover what it means to be true to herself and save the town she's learned to call home, or will her future turn into her worst... well, nightmare?

My Take on the Book
This was an amazing book. As someone that is a big Nightmare before Christmas fan this was a great book that allows you to wonder what would happen if Sally was the Pumpkin Queen and what this means. What I loved about this book is that you get to see Sally in a whole new way, with new adventures and new understanding about herself too. The book is a great read for any Disney or Nightmare before Christmas fan!
