Coraline - Neil Gaiman


My thoughts, The book was stunning and in my opinion way better then the movie, not to mention the illustrations were very well done and might I add slightly creepy, which I found very interesting.

As for what the book is about.

It is about a young girl named Coraline Jones who’s moved into this big Adams like family house, to where after awhile she finds a mysterious door in the drawing room, of the house.

when she opens it the first time, on the other side its all bricked up. but when she opens it a second time that day how ever, instead of the wall being bricked up, this time it was a portal to another world, entering. she comes face to face with her other mother and father that she thought would replace the ones in her old boring life, that is until she finds out that everything is not at all as she seems when she finds out that her other mother was non other then a witch called the beldam. Who had every intentions of keeping her there in that tiny little world forever, but Coraline manages to out wit the beldam and escape with her parents and the three dead children that came before her.
