Coraline went exploring one day . . .Her family has just moved to a completely new town, and so Coraline already feels a bit strange. In her new house there is one door that opens onto a brick wall. At least, it does until one day the bricks are gone and Coraline finds herself stepping over the threshold into another house . . . a house that's just like hers.At first things appear marvelous in this other house. The food is better. The toy box is filled with windup angels that flutter about, books whose pictures crawl and shimmer, and little dinosaur skulls that chatter their teeth. But there's another mother and another father—and they want Coraline to be their little girl and stay with them forever. They want to change her and never let her go.Other children are also trapped, as lost souls behind a mirror, and Coraline is their only hope. She will have to find a way to meet the other mother's challenge in order to save the lost children, her ordinary life, and herself.

4.0 Coraline by Neil Gaiman (audiobook)
I enjoyed listening to this far more than I enjoyed reading the same story in print the first time around. And I love the cat. Part of that may have been Gaiman's delivery of the cat's lines. Oops, I forgot to add that the rats' singing was super creepy.

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-CycleA good adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Coraline in graphic novel form. There was nothing wrong with this book. It was good. It follows the story with interesting illustrations. What hurts this graphic novel most is that the film adaptation (which has entir...

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...
