Story: Adaption of the early part of the movie.

Good/Bad: The art is directly lifted from the movie, other than the awesome new art for the cover by Pete Oswald. I was really hoping there would be at least new story elements in the book, if not an outright new story, but no luck there. But I love Laika and I love ParaNorman, so ParaNorman stuff is awesome.
