Book-A-Day #60 (9/15): MirrorMask by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean

This is the juvenile novella-ization of the movie, not the illustrated film script (also titled MirrorMask) or the big art book (which is The Alchemy of MirrorMask).

It's a bit slim, and feels very much like a novelization -- it skips from scene to scene of the movie without adding much backstory or expanding anything. It's not as successful as Gaiman's YA novella Coraline, and it's really mostly of interest (like so many novelizations) as a memento of the movie. (And the movie's not that great to begin with.)
