I've just posted a Case Notes Blog entry, which will go live tomorrow, in which several writers discuss their favourite novellas.

I'm linking it back to this thread, so that people can agree/disagree with their choices, or name any favourites of their own.

Henry Sugar by Roald Dahl. Loved it has a wee young lad, and also has an adult. Why oh why hasn't there been a film/TV adaptation?

Darabont created a pitch-perfect adaptation of King's "The Mist" - apart from toning down the cussing lawyer at the start.

N. by Stephen King
Gunpowder by Joe Hill
The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker (Too long to be considered a Novella?)

Here's some other novellas I would've mentioned if we hadn't been limited to just one.

The Events Concerning a Nude Fold-Out Found in a Harlequin Romance -- Joe R Lansdale
The Cancer Cowboy Rides -- John Connolly
Hell Hath Enlarged Herself -- Michael Marshall Smith
The Big Fish -- Kim Newman
Dark Gods -- T.E.D. Klein (You don't expect me to pick just one do you?)
White -- Tim Lebbon
Hell is the Absence of God -- Ted Chiang
Black Cocktail -- Jonathan Carroll

Don't Look Now by Daphne du Maurier might be added to my list but I'd have to read it again. I was kind of disappointed the first time round due to liking the film too much.

Chris, started reading Henry Sugar as part of English lessons as a kid but for some reason we never actually read to the end of the story. Keep meaning to finish it as it's been bugging me ever since.

Can't think of any favourites... but, glancing at my bookshelves, I see HEADS by Greg Bear, one of those nifty little hardcover editions that Legend published back in the 1990s.
