I mean there are two comics and one really short book in there but I'm surprised that I finished 9 books. Two of the books were a major let down BUT most of the books were just pretty amazing. So success.

Coraline!!!
Coraline - Neil Gaiman,Cornelia Krutz-Arnold

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 merkwürdiger findet Coraline die zugemauerte Tür in ihrer Wohnung. Was verbirgt sich hinter dieser Tür?

 

Das Buch hat mich von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite total überzeugt. Ein richtig schönes aber auch teilweise echt gruseliges Abenteuer, dass wir zusammen mit Coraline erleben dürfen. Es hat sich super schnell lesen lassen, nicht nur weil es ein kurzes Buch war, sondern auch weil es wirklich so unheimlich schön geschrieben war, dass man das Buch kaum aus der Hand legen konnte.

 

Ich kann das Buch wirklich nur total empfehlen, obwohl ich fast annehme, dass es eigentlich schon jeder gelesen hat??? Für mich wird es auf jeden Fall eines der Bücher sein, die ich immer wieder mal in die Hand nehme um es zu lesen.

Summary: Coraline's often wondered what's behind the locked door in the drawing room. It reveals only a brick wall when she finally opens it, but when she tries again later, a passageway mysteriously appears. Coraline is surprised to find a flat decorated exactly like her own, but strangely different. And when she finds her "other" parents in this alternate world, they are much more interesting despite their creepy black button eyes. When they make it clear, however, that they want to make her theirs forever, Coraline begins a nightmarish game to rescue her real parents and three children imprisoned in a mirror. With only a bored-through stone and an aloof cat to help, Coraline confronts this harrowing task of escaping these monstrous creatures.

 

From the first until the last page, this book really REALLY gripped me. Such a wonderful but also very creepy adventure that we got to go on with Coraline. Such a fast read, not just because it's a pretty short book but it's just so wonderfully written that I never wanted to put it down for long.

 

I highly recomment this book, even though I'm pretty sure that everyone has already read it??? For me, this will be one of the books, that I will pick up from time to time, to reread it.

Coraline - Neil Gaiman,Cornelia Krutz-Arnold

Watched the movie for the very first time a few months ago. Loved it. So I got this book really cheap on amazon and so far I'm really loving it. The writing, the story. Just everything.

Coraline
Coraline - Neil Gaiman

Grade Level: 6-8

Lexile Level: 740L

Coraline sets off to find what is on the other side of the small door in her new house. When she finds it, she thinks it is wonderful and is having a great time. However, what she finds is truly horrible and Coraline must find a way out. I would use this book as a read-aloud to my students during free time.

Coraline
Coraline - Neil Gaiman

Coraline is a strange but interesting story about a little girl who moves into a new house while her parents still do not seem to pay attention to her. She goes against her parents rules and gets into a closet that transports her into a different world where she meets people she calls her "Other parents". The Other parents look just like her parents except they have buttons for eyes and act quite strangely. She goes back and forth between the worlds until she decides she like the other world better. Her Other mother tries to get Coraline to sew buttons onto her eyes so she can stay in that world forever but Coraline figures out that her Other mother is just doing this to control her. The Other mother holds Coraline there until she escapes back into the real world with her real parents. This would be a great chapter book for advanced readers in the class.

 

Lexile Measure: 740L
