Coraline - Neil Gaiman,P. Craig Russell
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

A 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 entirely different artwork) came out a year after this book. Because of this, I'm sure most people associate Coraline with the movie animation, therefore, the graphic novel artwork doesn't measure up.

I'll admit, I prefer the movie artwork. Maybe because that was my first exposure to Coraline. I then read the novel and now the graphic novel (and I enjoy them all in that order, which is probably telling). The graphic novel representations of the characters run on the realistic side rather than the cartoon-y look of the movie. It's all a matter of preference and order of exposure. 

But still a good graphic novel, especially for those who enjoyed the original novel.

Coraline - Neil Gaiman

I chose this Picture because in the book the house is magnificent. It has a beautiful garden and the house almost gleams. It says she couldn't take her eyes off of it.

Coraline - Neil Gaiman

           My name is Jonathan Meising. My favorite genres are fantasy, sports, and horror. The title I choose was Coraline by Neil Gaiman and I choose it because I like horror books.


           I am reading Coraline by Neil Gaiman. I have read up to page 23 and so far it is a great book. The authors style is smooth and in third-person limited. So far Coraline moves to an old house. She feels bored and neglected by her parents. She finds a hidden door that is bricked up. During the night, she crosses a bricked up door. But where the door was there is a passage way. She then crawled through the passage way where finds a parallel world. There where everybody has buttons instead of eyes. Also in the world she has caring parents plus all of her dreams coming true.

Exploring A New Home.
Coraline - Neil Gaiman

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 from a child's perspective in moving to a new house, and making new friends, which many children may experience. Vocabulary scavenger hunts would be a fun activity for this books, as would sequencing segments from the book and putting them in the correct order. Character traits would be another activity to work on with this book. 

Grade Level: 3-5th 

Lexile Measure: 740L

October was a crazy month here at the Horror Corner! 


The most important, (and beautiful thing), was that my lovely niece married her best friend of 20+ years. The ceremony was wonderful and the reception a lot of fun!




Then, two weeks after that was the Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival!

You can find my post about that HERE.
