The hit 1990 John Hughes film, which will forever be identified with Macaulay Culkins cheek-slapping scream, gets the picture book treatment. When eight-year-old Kevin McCallister is accidentally left behind as his family embarks on a Christmas trip, the boy gleefully embraces solo run of the house; oddly, the book never explains where his family has actually gone, simply allowing Kevinand readers unfamiliar with the filmto think that hes made them disappear overnight.) Following the films plot points, Kevin attends Christmas Eve church services, sets elaborate booby traps to thwart would-be burglars, and makes a connection with scary Old Man Marley who lives next door. Fans of the movie will enjoy Smiths comic renderings of Kevins antics, though lines like Marv and Henry slipped on the toy cars and were knocked over by paint cans dont live up to the mayhem of the source material. Ages 48. (Oct.)
