You should curl up on a rainy day to read this scary tale

Stupendous! Story

It was a exciting ride with great detail all most like I was in the story.


wonderfully creepy


A short, interesting book that takes children and what they see seriously. I could identify with Coraline in many ways. Some parts of the book are creepy, so it may not be appropriate for all children.


I first read this book when I was in 5th grade and it was a little creepy.

Spooky Fun for a Rainy Day

This is a scary, scary book. It's not at all graphic, but it is seriously spooky in the "things that go bump in the dark" manner. The "other mother" is the creepiest literary villain that I've ever run across - and calling her "beldam" makes her even scarier somehow.

Gaiman is really incredibly talented. He mixes all kinds of fantastic things and ideas (buttons, bricked up doors, kid bored on a rainy day, parents who spend too much time on the computer , theatre, rats, mice, spiders, cats, alternate worlds, snowglobes, mirrors) in a most fulfilling story.

The end of the story is really satisfying - clever Coraline!
