"Coraline discovered the door a little while after they moved into the house. . . ."

When Coraline steps through a door to find another house strangely similar to her own (only better), things seem marvelous.

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 courage if she is to save herself and return to her ordinary life.

Celebrating ten years of Neil Gaiman's first modern classic for young readers, this edition is enriched with a brand-new foreword from the author, a reader's guide, and more."

My Thoughts:

I watched the movie adaptation of Coraline. Didn't know it was a book. So I wanted to compare the two. I really enjoyed the book. Coraline is one very brave young girl in deed. I think this would be the perfect Halloween read. Or an early spooky read to get you ready for the Halloween season.
Which is why I picked it up.

Great read for all ages. Even being an adult I found my heart racing at times.

Will be reading more of Neil Gaiman's work in the future.

5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
