The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.
What the judges said: A sophisticated and challenging graphic novel which employs striking images, collage and film stills to work with an extensive text for older readers. It has an edgy, fragmented feel, and this lack of cohesion reflects what is going on in the story, giving great synergy to the whole. A book with real visual impact, which takes us out of our comfort zone.
Mirrormask by Neil Gaiman
Features the story of a girl from a family of circus performers who finds herself in a strange new world populated by mysterious creatures - a dreamworld in which she is about to embark on a most amazing journey. This fantasy novella is written for young readers.
'This spectacular book, with its stylish blend of photography, paint, collage and drawing does not look like most children's picture books. It bypasses the cosy, simplified cliches of child appeal, which makes it absolutely intriguing for youngsters. It is atmospheric, sinister, scary and funny ...This is a book for cool kids who will grow up to be fearless'
'One of the most stylish picture books for 5+ ... a strange, cathartic, visually original book about a scary prediction that comes true, and is also classy and cool'
'Gaiman's words and McKean's pictures are a match made in ... some dark damp inspirational place. With gems like this and The Wolves in the Walls the pair are extending the audience for picture books'
