This is the 80 page children's edition, and was a most delightful, if quick, read. :)

Book Description

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.

Helena is a 15 year old girl who hates her life in the circus. She tells her parents she just wants to run away and have a "real life". Unfortunately, Helena's mom then falls ill, and while she's in the hospital, Helena is thrown into a very strange dreamland: a strange, dark realm like a mirror of her own, but the dark side... Helena meets some strange characters while she seeks to find the key to saving her mom and returning to the other side.

This was a quick and fun read. I'm almost wishing I'd opted for the longer screenplay version of this book, simply because the art work included here left me wishing I could see more, and the descriptions of some of the characters and places Helena encountered sounded really freaky!! But yay, shortly after I put it in my Netflix queue, I noticed it's on Starz this month anyway, so I set up TiVo to record it. :-)
