M. Night Shyamalan’s film Lady in the Water, opening this week, began as a story for his children, and I’ve got a copy of the book to give away, courtesy of Warner Bros. and Little, Brown. Here’s the scoop on the book, from Little, Brown:

Originally written by M. Night Shyamalan as a bedtime story for his own children, the story of the Lady in the Water is an imaginative reading experience that inspires readers to observe the world around them and consider their purpose on earth. Like all of Shyamalan’s work, this story offers a dark mystery with surprising twists, a touch of magic, and a powerful message at the end.

This book stands completely on its own as a unique reading experience and is intended to complement the film, rather than recreate it. While the myth of the “lady in the water” forms the basis for the plot of the film, the film characters and setting are not featured in the book. Those who both read the book and see the film will have a deeper, richer experience of Night’s story.

My review of the film is here.

If you don’t want to wait to win, buy the book at Amazon.
