Description

Coraline discovered the door a little after they moved into the house.

When Coraline steps through a door in her family's new house, she finds another house strangely similar to her own (only better). But there's another mother there and another father, and they want her to stay and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.

Acclaimed artist P. Craig Russell brings Neil Gaiman's enchanting, nationally bestselling children's book Coraline to new life in this gorgeously illustrated graphic novel adaptation.

Review quote

"This adaptation of Neil Gaiman's novel reads as though it were intended for the graphic novel format in the first place.... Russell's illustrations suit the tone of the story perfectly.--School Library Journal (starred review)

Review Text

"A virtuoso adaptation...a master of fantastical landscapes, Russell sharpens the realism of his imagery, preserving the humanity of the characters and heightening the horror, even as Gaiman's concise storytelling ratchets up the eeriness." Booklist (starred review)

Our customer reviews

This version of CORALINE is a graphic novel adaptation of the novel penned by Neil Gaiman. The story follows a common theme in his works of the naive, yet determined, everyman who stumbles into an alternate reality. The protagonist in this story arises in the form of a young girl named Coraline. I found the dialogue to be smartly written and the narrative engaging. The artwork, while typical comic fare, set the visual mood quite well. I greatly enjoyed this story. I found the characters likeable and believable in the context of the story, which in and of itself seemed to me to be an odd metaphor for "growing up." I cannot recommend this enough to fans of Neil Gaiman's work or to someone looking for something just a little bit different.show more
