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.
This story made me think of a little girl who complained that her mother wouldn’t buy her special clothes. Read morePublished 12 hours ago by Jane
Good fun quick read, but not good if looking for a more thought provoking or difficult book. Good to read with kids for family book clubs.Published 3 days ago by Kayla Sandoval
Coraline is a beautifully written book — unembellished and raw, yet rich in suggesting the emotions of our protagonist as she braves her way to save her world. Read morePublished 5 days ago by shyn
I am probably not the intended audience for this book, I am 23 not 12, but I loved this! I already had the movie and I had never knew the book existed until I found it on day here... Read morePublished 5 days ago by kaylie
I've read it before and really enjoyed it. I wouldn't suggestion reading it to your child unless you like waking up because of nightmares. The movie does not do the book justice.Published 8 days ago by cfendr1
