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.
'Sometimes funny, always creepy, genuinely moving, this marvellous spine-chiller will appeal to readers from nine to ninety.' Books for Keeps; 'I was looking forward to Coraline, and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I was enthralled. This is a marvellously strange and scary book' Philip Pullman, Guardian; 'If any writer can get the guys to read about the girls, it should be Neil Gaiman. His new novel, Coraline is a dreamlike adventure. For all its gripping nightmare imagery, this is actually a conventional fairy story with a moral.' Daily Telegraph
