What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

When Coraline steps through a door in her family’s new house, she finds another house, strangely similar to her own (only better). At first, things seem marvelous. The food is better than at home, and the toy box is filled with fluttering wind-up angels and dinosaur skulls that crawl and rattle their teeth.

But there’s another mother there and another father, and they want her to stay and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go. Coraline will have to fight with all her wit and all the tools she can find if she is to save herself and return to her ordinary life.

This beloved tale has now become a visual feast. Acclaimed artist P. CraigRussell brings Neil Gaiman’s enchanting nationally bestselling children’s book Coraline to new life in this gorgeously illustrated graphic novel adaptation.

Okay, I get why some people love this. I can even see how some young adult readers could love it. But I read it as an adult and it was SO SCARY. Neil Gaiman is a masterful storyteller, and it was interesting to see this book turned into a graphic novel—but somehow seeing the characters and events illustrated made it even scarier than the original. Read with caution.
