A brilliant graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman's critically
acclaimed novel for young people. When Coraline moves to a new home,
she is fascinated by the fact that the 'house' is really only half a
house - it was divided into flats years before. And it soon becomes
clear to Coraline that the other flat is not quite as cosy and safe as
Coraline is not the kind of girl to be put off by a sign of danger read in some tea-leaves or indeed a message sent to her by some very talented mice! No, she is the kind of girl who faces a challenge with bravery, intelligence and a lot of determination. Which is just as well because she is going to need all those skills, and more, in this wonderful, spooky tale of a girl caught on the wrong side of a door, with counterfeit parents who have buttons for eyes and who clearly do not intend to set her free.
'Rise to your feet and applaud: 'Coraline' is the real thing' - Philip Pullman

'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
