"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

Well, his father did tell him he couldn't stay in school for the rest of his life. Williams is a self-described greedy student who finds himself interested in a wide variety of things. Some of these things may not seem connected, but for him they are all paths to an ultimate goal. The common thread the greater part of those interests share is a path to becoming better and helping others to do the same - that might be in a wide variety of areas as well.

Reviews

"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
"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
★"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)
"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
★"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)
"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
