Our Bookseller says:
I’m not saying that this book will ensure that your kid grows up the right type of weird, but….. I totally am. Coraline is like a fairy tale fused with a fever dream, all about illusions and untruths and how terrible it would be to have button eyes sewed into your face.
The story twists and turns and consistently thrills; Gaiman’s prose is captivating and creepy in the most marvelous way. Perfect for any older kid fascinated with the spooky, this book makes a great introduction to more classic horror and a more mature stepping stone after something like Alice In Wonderland. It was also my fave book at age 11! – Terry
