This is a great re-release of the novelization for the 1986 film Labyrinth. (I was sad that this took the place of the prequel I was so looking forward to though.)

The Story: At times the story seemed very Alice in Wonderland which I know was one inspiration for the film, but it really shows through when describing Sarah's thought process. Compared to the film Sarah seems more childish and even more self-centred which is slightly annoying. On the other hand I suppose it's more realistic how frighted and panicked she becomes when faced with the strange creatures and settings of the Labyrinth. I do like how the book shows us what was behind the left door with the knockers (and I found it to be a very disturbing place). This gives us a more valid reason for her determination to get the ring back in the right door knocker's mouth to go through that door instead. All in all the book follows the film very closely.

The Packaging: The cover has a classic look with a Brian Froud sketch on the front and back. Inside the cover is a maroon background with a black maze pattern. There is a small maze in a square beside the book title and chapter title at the top of each page. Even though it's a small detail, the fact that the maze is different for each chapter gives it a caring touch.

The Extras: At the back of the book are first, 20 unpublished Illustrations by Brian Froud and then second,
50 never-before-seen pages from Jim Henson's personal journal, detailing initial conception of his ideas for Labyrinth. Both of which are proceeded with a Forward.

With Froud's illustrations you will find some recognizable characters including the Wiseman and Ludo. Some creatures are sketches and others are finished drawings with colour.

Finally in print again, the novelization of Labyrinth presents a different side of Sarah and Jareth. If you are a rabid fan you should buy this before it goes out of print like the first edition.

The hardcover binding and inside cover are lovely. I was disappointed that none of the sketches by Brian Froud were of our goblin king, alas. This book includes 50 pages from Jim Henson's private journal about the concept of the Labyrinth movie which any diehard fan will love.

I was so excited to find this. I had no idea it was even out until my sister told me. It did not disappoint. It took the story to a whole new level. I really found the sketches in the back of the book intriguing and a great bonus.
