The Lovereading4Kids comment
When Coraline’s family move into a new home, she steps through a door into another house which seems strangely familiar. It has many of the things she has at home but they are all strangely different. There is even a replacement set of parents. At first, Coraline likes her new home but she soon realises that the new parents are reluctant to let her go. Can Coraline escape? Will she ever get home? Not for the faint hearted, this is a fascinating and chilling story, exquisitely told.
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
When Coraline moves to a new house she is fascinated by the fact that their house is in fact only half a house. Divided into flats years before, the other flat, it soon becomes clear to Coraline, is not quite as cosy and safe as her own.
'I was looking forward to Coraline, and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I was enthralled. This is a marvellously strange and scary book.' Philip Pullman
'Sometimes funny, always creepy, genuinely moving, this marvellous spine-chiller will appeal to readers from nine to ninety.' Books for Keeps
'If any writer can get the guys to read about the girls, it should be Neil Gaimna. Coraline is a dreamlike adventure.' Daily Telegraph
'This book will send a shive down your spine, out through your shoes and into a taxi to the airport. It has the delivate horror of the finest fairy tales, and it is a masterpiece. And you will never think about buttons the same way again.' Terru Pratchett
'This book will nudge Alice in Wonderland out of its niche at last. It is the most splendidly original, weirdand frightening book I have read, and yet full of things children will love.' Diana Wynne Jones
