Publisher Description

A New York Times Bestseller!

Fans of dark fairy-tales like The Hazel Wood and The Cruel Prince will relish this atmospheric and absorbing book based on Guillermo del Toro’s critically acclaimed movie.

Oscar winning writer-director Guillermo del Toro and bestselling author Cornelia Funke have come together to transform del Toro’s hit movie Pan’s Labyrinth into an epic and dark fantasy novel for readers of all ages, complete with haunting illustrations and enchanting short stories that flesh out the folklore of this fascinating world.

This spellbinding tale takes readers to a sinister, magical, and war-torn world filled with richly drawn characters like trickster fauns, murderous soldiers, child-eating monsters, courageous rebels, and a long-lost princess hoping to be reunited with her family.

A brilliant collaboration between masterful storytellers that’s not to be missed.

“Perfectly unsettling and deeply felt, this reminded me of the best kind of fairytales wherein each chapter is a jewel that, when held up to the light, reframes how we see the world around us.” —Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen and Aru Shah and the End of Time

“A fearless and moving adaption of the film, and a gorgeously written, emotional, frightening parable about the courage of young women amid the brutality of war.” —Michael Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Gone

I am in love with the movie and I am extremely impressed with how this book came out. When my brother showed me this was going to come out I couldn’t wait to get it. Toro and Funke really out did themselves with turning the movie into a book and the artwork is absolutely gorgeous especially The Faun And Pale Man. They nailed it 100%. The book is exactly like the movie and it goes from the story to little short stories and comes with haunting, beautiful artwork. This is an absolute masterpiece and I highly recommend it if you’re a fan of the authors or the movie.

Excellent read, but... has its flaws.

I fell in love with the movie the first time I saw it. Which is saying something because, I avoid subtitles like the plague.

This book, paints an even better image of the storyline, than the movie. The included fairytales, added information that the movie lacked. They’re not necessarily vital to the actual narrative, but they do answer a few questions for those who are a bit more curious.

It’s definitely something I will read again. Probably sooner, rather than later.

However, I do find issue with one thing. There are several grammatical errors in the text, breaking the flow. You may find yourself having to reread certain parts, to make sure you’ve understood what the authors were trying to convey.

Then again, this is an exceeding common issue with nearly every book that has been published in recent years. I’ve even found a number of them in one of the most popular series there is these days. (Think witchcraft, wizardry, and schools.)

So, really, it’s nothing major, in comparison with recent literature. It’s simple editing error, but it did bring my rating from 5/5, to 4/5. It is a published book, after all. It should be held to a higher standard. It’s not a social media post, a fan-fiction, or a book review.

But don’t let its grammatical shortcomings stop you from reading it, especially if you enjoyed the movie. It’s well worth it.
