Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 6-9-Master storyteller Funke and critically acclaimed director del Toro have woven a tale of greed, bravery, and sacrifice inspired by the Oscar-winning film. In 1944, 13-year-old Ofelia and her pregnant mother, Carmen, have come to live with her mother's new husband in a forest north of Spain. Ofelia is afraid of her new stepfather, whom she has nicknamed "The Wolf." She worries that he will hurt her mother. When they have almost reached her new home, she encounters a small twiglike creature that she knows immediately is actually a fairy. Ofelia is correct, as the strange fairy returns later on. She follows it through the forest, where she meets a half-man, half-goat creature, the Faun. He tells her that she is the reincarnation of an Underworld princess but her memories were erased by the sun. Ofelia's true father, the king of the Underworld, has left portals open all over the word so she can return to him. It has been so long since she left, there is only one portal still open. Ofelia must pass a series of tests before she is allowed to return to the Underworld. Readers will easily relate to Ofelia's fears and applaud her bravery. Imaginative vignettes and black-and-white illustrations add depth to the narrative. Hand to fans of the movie, but also expect to engender new devotees with such captivating lore. ­VERDICT Reminiscent of C.S. Lewis's "Chronicles of Narnia" series and Lewis ­Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, this creatively cryptic tale will enchant readers who delight in fantasy.-Julie Shatterly, W. A. Bess Elementary School, Gastonia, NCα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Review

★“Charged with the monumental task of adapting an intricate film to the page, del Toro (The Shape of Water, 2018, etc.) and Funke (The Griffin’s Feather, 2018, etc.) have avoided merely describing the film and instead have elegantly recrafted the narrative…. Dark and mesmerizing.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

★“Reminiscent of C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia series and Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, this creatively cryptic tale will enchant readers who delight in fantasy.” -- School Library Journal (starred review)

★“A richly told story that blends fairy tale magic and historical tragedy to create an eerie, chilling look at the many faces of evil.” -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

“Funke maintains the tale’s dark beauty, filling it with imaginative details, complex characters, love, and history, as well as humanity’s evils. With pages hauntingly framed in trees and gorgeous full-page illustrations, this book will creep into the minds and hearts of readers and linger there.” -- ALA Booklist

“Fans of the film will enjoy this in-depth exploration and reimagining of the source material, while newcomers will have no trouble getting into the story, though its dark themes and occasional gruesome scenes aren’t for the faint-hearted.” -- Publishers Weekly

“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 & 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

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book, great purchase!
By The Canadians on July 17, 2019
I am a huge fan of the movie so I’ve been eyeing this for quite a while. I received it yesterday and was very pleased with the beautiful dust jacket as well as the cover of the book. The pages are lovely to look and the illustrations are beautiful. I am half way through the book already and pleased to say it is as well written as the movie (maybe better written, if possible :) this is well worth the 5 stars. I love it.

This book is magic. I adored it. Buy it in hardback. It’s as appealing on the outside as it is spellbinding on the inside.

3.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful retelling, but has serious pacing problems
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 17, 2020
Once upon a time—2006, actually—I set out on a quest to watch Pan’s Labyrinth. It was one of those rare and refreshing cinematic experiences that captivated my imagination and made me think, ‘now, here’s something different.’ Since then, I’ve been a huge fan of Del Toro’s storytelling ability, which has taken on something of the nature of the fairy tales he crafts; he weaves gold from straw, beautifully interlacing the world around us with an otherworldly ambience.

Naturally, when I heard that a book was coming, I was curious. Would this work? After all, the treacherous journey from film to book has been attempted many times before, and it’s pathways are strewn with the corpses of prior attempts.

So how does the novelisation measure up to the film?

Well... erm... um... OK... ish, I guess.

The movie obviously has the visual advantage in painting the presence of this dark fairy tale. On the other side, the book gives some glimpses into the story that easily slip through the cracks of the movie—a big plus for the book, and something I enjoyed. The book does convey the same magical story; the enchantment is there, the threat and danger are there, and the depth of characters are certainly there (more so than the film). However, its the prose that lets this adaptation down.

As a plus side, the book attempts to tell this tale in the same way a fairy tale is told. The fairy tales that are layered throughout this story (and which are integral to its background) are told exclusively in this fashion. Whereas, real world events are narrated in a semi-fairy tale way, hinting at us that real life is just a dangerous and otherworldly. I enjoyed this stylistic approach; it suited the mood and nature of the story perfectly. Sadly, from time to time, when the real-world events got dramatic, this semi-tone fashion failed to convey the scenes suitably. It’s wasn’t a problem with word choice etc., but more to do with pace and transition. If there were only a few extra sentences leading in, through and out of these scenes, it would have made a world of difference. This doesn’t happen all the time, though; most of the time, it’s a smooth journey. But when these transition problems turn up, it’s like hitting a pot hole. Which is a shame, because they sadly interrupt what is, in the main, a beautiful retelling of the movie.

To end on a positive note: There’s plenty to enjoy here, and, as a big plus, I don’t believe that you have to have seen the movie to relish this story. That said, for those of us who have seen it, it will make you want to rewatch it again. Which isn’t a bad thing.

Ps. For those who have never seen the film, this is not a fairy tale for kids!
