Run — don’t walk — to Amazon right now and order this: an all new, just-for-this-Christmas children’s book titled, “A Die Hard Christmas“.
Yippee-ki-yay, Christmas lovers.
Yes, you can cozy up by the tree with your little one and a healthy dose of John McClane blowing away terrorists, complete with bullets, blood and violence for, oh, about $15.
The all new children’s book comes out in October and is written by comedian Doogie Horner, and illustrated by JJ Horner. It was allegedly inspired by the classic Christmas poem, Twas the Night Before Christmas, but we really know this is all about Die Hard — well, and Christmas.
This sure-to-be-a-collectors edition will most certainly sell out quickly.
Even though the movie is pushing 30 years old Die Hard has long been considered a Christmas classic and that means this book, no doubt, will rank well with the other books of Christmas that are so popular: Dicken’s A Christmas Carol, The Bible, and, of course, Lifesavers Book of Candy.
Now, lest you think this is some cheap merchandising scheme, we urge you to look at the following illustration and judge for yourself how true-to-Die-Hard this book really is:
A Christmas purist with an enthusiastic style, sometimes almost poetic. Chuck is a master of Christmas storytelling with a keen eye for social history and a stickler for yuletide decorum, tradition and legend. Chuck writes on all holiday topics, usually with unbridled joy and unvarnished delight.
