Die Hard is one of the most beloved Christmas films of all time, right up there with A Muppet Christmas Carol and It’s a Wonderful Life. Despite being an R-rated action film about a tough cop saving the day from a group of terrorists, there’s still something about Die Hard that brings out the Christmas cheer in us.
Whilst it’s a treat for more mature audiences, Die Hard certainly isn’t suitable for kids, until now! This Christmas, you can tuck your little ones into bed and send them off to the land of nod with this children book that teaches young one the story of the no nonsense cop John McClane.
Written by comedian Doogie Horner, and illustrated by JJ Harrison, A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic is inspired by the classic poem Twas the Night Before Christmas, but instead tells the tale of McClane’s heroics.
The book is set to be released on October 17. It does include illustrations of the violent events of the film so it may not be totally suitable for kiddies.

Early reviews are positive, and positive enough for Amazon and Virgin Media to put their money where their proverbial mouths are, putting into production a 10-part drama set in London.
The authors include the likes of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, Mark Haddon, and author of The Essex Serpent, Sarah Perry. Each author was given an historic site, and challenged with writing a ghost story set within the walls of said site.
