What's on the other side of the door? A distorted-mirror world, containing presumably everything Coraline has ever dreamed of... people who pronounce her name correctly (not "Caroline"), delicious meals (not like her father's overblown "recipes"), an unusually pink and green bedroom (not like her dull one), and plenty of horrible (very un-boring) marvels, like a man made out of live rats. The creepiest part, however, is her mirrored parents, her "other mother" and her "other father"--people who look just like her own parents, but with big, shiny, black button eyes, paper-white skin... and a keen desire to keep her on their side of the door. To make creepy creepier, Coraline has been illustrated masterfully in scritchy, terrifying ink drawings by British mixed-media artist and Sandman cover illustrator Dave McKean. This delightful, funny, haunting, scary as heck, fairy-tale novel is about as fine as they come. Highly recommended. (Ages 11 and older) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
I certainly enjoy reading Neil gaiman's work. This was not an exceptionPublished 4 days ago by Ty Hillegonds
I love this book, though the illustrations are dark. I also like it has further information about the book at the end for the viewer to discover who the creator truly is! Read morePublished 15 days ago by kekuva2

Coraline is fantastically creepy and wonderful. I read it as an adult but can't wait to read it to my five year old. This book is creative storytelling at its best.Published 1 month ago by Amy Gibbons
Wily, but enchanting little Coraline gets trapped in an “other” world where her “Other Mother” tries to keep her forever. Somehow reminiscent of Beetlejuice.Published 1 month ago by Joe Da Rold
