Home Alone 2: Lost in New York: The Classic Illustrated Storybook

Based on the film written by John Hughes, illus. by Kim Smith. Quirk, $18.99 (40p) ISBN 978-1-68369-136-5
This addition to the Pop Classics series stages the second installment in the 1990s Home Alone franchise. As was the case with its predecessor, the story of a trouble-prone child’s unexpected Christmas alone, and his ability to thwart the nefarious plans of two bumbling thieves, lends itself effectively to the picture book format. Kevin—loyally rendered with a knit cap, backpack, and pictured with a wide-mouthed scream of alarm upon being separated from his family and arriving in New York City—is easy to root for, while other characters carry a strong resemblance to those in the film. A lively readaloud that may be best preceded by a viewing of the film. Ages 4–8. (Oct.)
