A sensational graphic novel version of Neil Gaiman’s story which adds extra layers of fear to the already powerful narrative. When Coraline’s family move into a new home, she steps through a door into another house which seems strangely familiar. It has many of the things she has at home but they are all strangely different. There is even a replacement set of parents. At first, Coraline likes her new home but she soon realises that the new parents are reluctant to let her go. Can Coraline escape? Will she ever get home? Not for the faint hearted, this is a fascinating and chilling story exquisitely told in words and pictures.

If you like Neil Gaiman you might also like to read books by Chaz Brenchley, Michael Marshall Smith and Clive Barker.

Synopsis

Coraline by Neil Gaiman

When Coraline moves to a new house she is fascinated by the fact that their house is in fact only half a house. Divided into flats years before, the other flat, it soon becomes clear to Coraline, is not quite as cosy and safe as her own.

Reviews

'I think this book will nudge ALICE IN WONDERLAND out of its niche at last. It is the most splendidly original, weird, and frightening book I have read, and yet full of things children will love'
Diana Wynne Jones

'This book will send a shiver down your spine, out through your shoes and into a taxi to the airport. It has the delicate horror of the finest fairy tales, and it is a masterpiece. And you will never think about buttons in quite the same way again'
Terry Pratchett
