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.
The story, Coraline, which was written by Neil Gaiman, is a very suspenseful, haunting book.
Coraline by Neil Gaiman is a great book, which can be enjoyed by children and adults, however, I would only recommend it to kids who aren't too easily scared.
During one of her expeditions, Coraline discovers a door which when opened leads to another house --- a house just like the one she and her family live in.
Deliciously creepy. It shows a child's viewpoint very clearly. There are just enough funny moments to keep this story going.Published 6 days ago by Amazon Customer

This is a great book for middle schoolers (that's when I read it.) Much better than the movie, which was very kid-ish, this book is creepy and very atmospheric. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Krissy B.
