Finished this book last night. It was a very quick, entertaining read. It was written for children but it never hurts to take a quick trip back to childhood now and then. lol I am looking forward to reading more of Gaiman's books geared towards kids.

I am reserving this to send to my Valentine Exchange partner as it is on her wishlist.

Coraline lives with her very busy parents. Downstairs is a couple of elderly women directly from the stage and upstairs is a crazy old man who is training a mouse circus. Coraline wants some more attention. She is bored.

In her parlor is a locked door, behind which is a wall. One day when Coraline opens the door there is a long dark corridor. This leads to the 'other' family and people. At first it seems like this is a dream come true. But soon after it is only a nightmare from which Coraline must save everyone. She must be brave.

This is a children's novel. A delightfully scary and interesting premise. Coraline learns that she really has everything she need right in front of her.

Coraline is an explorer. Her parents work at home so can't give her their full attention, which means she needs to find other ways to occupy her time. She explores the grounds of her home. One day she decides to open up every single door in her building and comes across one that leads to brick.

The next time Coraline opens this door, it leads to a hallway. Coraline follows it and finds her mom and dad... except something isn't quite the same about them. Coraline must challenge her "other mother" and fight to get back to her real parents.

This book was an easy read and was entertaining, but was just plain creepy. This would scare the crap out of me if I was a 12 year old.
