The day after they moved in, Coraline went exploring.... In Coraline's family's new flat are twenty-one windows and fourteen doors. Thirteen of the doors open and close.The fourteenth is locked, and on the other side is only a brick wall, until the day Coraline unlocks the door to find a passage to another flat in another house just like her own.Only it's different.At first, things seem marvelous in the other flat. The food is better. The toy box is filled with wind-up angels that flutter around the bedroom, books whose pictures writhe and crawl and shimmer, little dinosaur skulls that chatter their teeth. But there's another mother, and another father, and they want Coraline to stay with them and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.Other children are trapped there as well, lost souls behind the mirrors. Coraline is their only hope of rescue. She will have to fight with all her wits and all the tools she can find if she is to save the lost children, her ordinary life, and herself.Critically acclaimed and award-winning author Neil Gaiman will delight readers with his first novel for all ages.

5.0 Exploring A New Home.
Coraline offers a very imaginative feature for children in upper elementary grades. It has very detailed, and descriptive mannerisms that really engage the reader. Although, it can also be scary, so i would not recommend this for younger grades. This book can relate to children because it is given f...

4.0 Coraline, written and narrated by Neil Gaiman
A very cute nightmarish story for the young adult market. This audiobook version was read by Neil Gaiman himself and was totally charming.

German and english review Inhalt: Coraline ist mit ihren Eltern in ein düsteres altes Haus gezogen. Die Nachbarn sind reichlich merkwürdig: Der verrückte Herr mit Schnurrbart erzählt von seinem Mäusezirkus, die schrulligen Schauspielerinnen warnen sie vor dem tiefen Brunnen im Garten. Noch merkwür...
