Editorial Reviews

Review

“Gaiman’s tale is inventive, scary, thrilling and finally affirmative. Readers young and old will find something to startle them.” (Washington Post Book World)

“Coraline is by turns creepy and funny, bittersweet and playful…can be read quickly and enjoyed deeply.” (San Francisco Chronicle Book Review)

“A modern ghost story with all the creepy trimmings…Well done.” (New York Times Book Review)

“A magnificently creepy story…Coraline is spot on.” (Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review)

“Gaiman’s pacing is superb, and he steers the tension of the tale with a deft and practiced narrative touch.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, rise to your feet and applaud: Coraline is the real thing.” (Philip Pullman, The Guardian)

“The most splendidly original, weird, and frightening book I have read, and yet full of things children will love.” (Diana Wynne Jones)

“It has the delicate horror of the finest fairy tales, and it is a masterpiece.” (Terry Pratchett)

“An electrifyingly creepy tale likely to haunt young readers for many moons.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“ Walk through the door and you’ll believe in love, magic, and the power of good over evil.” (USA Today)
