Book Description

Sept. 15 2005

Helena is about to embark on a most amazing journey.

Raised in a family of circus performers, she's always dreamed of leading a more ordinary life. But when haunting music draws her into a strange and magical realm, one where anything can happen, her real life is stolen by a runaway from the other side. Helena must rescue the realm from chaos in order to win back her own not-so-ordinary life.

MirrorMask is a breathtaking film written by bestselling author Neil Gaiman and brought to life through the vision of acclaimed artist and director Dave McKean. This original novella is Helena's tale in her own voice, written by master storyteller Neil Gaiman and accompanied by original art by Dave McKean and images from the film; it is a stunning and magical journey.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9–Coraline fans too young for The Sandman series (DC Comics) form the most likely audience for this novella of the film MirrorMask. A fitful dream the night before her mothers surgery takes 15-year-old Helena to a world split into light and darkness. The queen of the White City is ill, and only the stolen MirrorMask can save her and her kingdom. As Helenas quest to find the Charm wears on, she realizes that she might not be dreaming after all. McKeans stark but lively pen-and-ink drawings perfectly reflect the narratives sinister humor. The images from the film, however, are drab and unclear. While entertaining, this scant story is less developed than Gaimans other work and, being a movie tie-in, threatens to join the growing pile of pop-culture ephemera all too soon.–Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

Review

'This book is quite extraordinary. Extraordinary and scary. But also madly inventive and madly funny. It illustrates two things that it is quite crucial to remember for this age group: you are never, ever too old for picture books and that even when you can read quite fluently - which many at the top end of this age range will be able to do - a story shared is a story that doubles in pleasure.' Guardian 'This spectacular book, with its stylish blend of photography, paint, collage and drawing does not look like most children's picture books. It bypasses the cosy, simplified cliches of child appeal, which makes it absolutely intriguing for youngsters. It is atmospheric, sinister, scary and funny This is a book for cool kids who will grow up to be fearless.' Sunday Times one of the most stylish picture books for 5+ a strange, cathartic, visually original book about a scary prediction that comes true, and is also classy and cool.' Sunday Times Books of the Year Gaiman's words and McKean's pictures are a match made in some dark damp inspirational place. With gems like this and 'The Wolves in the Walls' the pair are extending the audience for picture books" Time Out --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
