About the Book

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 New York Times 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

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

★“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)

“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
