Coraline

Written by Neil Gaiman

Illustrated by Chris Riddell

Coraline Synopsis

There is something strange about Coraline's new home. It's not the mist, or the cat that always seems to be watching her, nor the signs of danger that Miss Spink and Miss Forcible, her new neighbours, read in the tea leaves. It's the other house - the one behind the old door in the drawing room. Another mother and father with black-button eyes and papery skin are waiting for Coraline to join them there. And they want her to stay with them. For ever. She knows that if she ventures through that door, she may never come back.

Coraline Press Reviews

Sometimes funny, always creepy, genuinely moving, this marvellous spine-chiller will appeal to readers from nine to ninety * Books for Keeps * 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 * Guardian * If any writer can get the guys to read about the girls, it should be Neil Gaiman. Coraline is a dreamlike adventure. For all its gripping nightmare imagery, this is actually a conventional fairy story with a moral * Daily Telegraph *
