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

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

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

“So wonderfully whimsical that readers of all ages will hungrily devour itCoraline is destined to become a classic. -- Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“Chilly, finely-wrought prose, a truly weird setting and a fable that taps into our most uncomfortable fears.” -- Times Educational Supplement

“A deliciously scary book that we loved reading together as a family.” -- Orson Scott Card

“Beautifully spooky. Gaiman actually seems to understand the way children think. ” -- Christian Science Monitor

“A frighteningly realistic fantasy. Lean crisp prose adds to the suspense and propels the story, and the eerie black-and-white illustrations by Dave McKean heighten the nightmarish quality of the tale.” -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

“Kids will hang on every word. Coraline is a character with whom they will surely identify, and they will love being frightened out of their shoes. This is just right for all those requests for a scary book.” -- School Library Journal (starred review)

From the Back Cover

When Coraline steps through a door to find another house strangely similar to her own (only better), things seem marvelous.

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.

Coraline will have to fight with all her wit and courage if she is to save herself and return to her ordinary life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bu Bu Buttons
By Toni on October 3, 2020
“Who doesn’t like games”.
Like a lot of people I will say I saw the movie when I was younger, and to this day it’s still one of my favorites, it’s a go to for sure. I have Cosplayed Coraline for Comic-Con, and I have a Caroline button tattoo. So, we know I love it.
But I had never read the book! To be honest I didn’t know who wrote it either, a fail on my part. However when I found it oh boy, I had to read it.
- [ ] Neil Gaiman has an ability to write amazing stories, filled with great description and definitely spookiness. If you don’t know the story of Coraline, it’s about a little girl who goes through a doorway in her house to her other house and finds her “other parents “ and they want her to stay forever! But of course something has to change with her too. Go through the story to see what the real world and other world have to offer. A very creepy story with creepy but amazing illustrations by Dave McKean go and see what this book has to offer. Also, if you get the 10the anniversary edition which I suggest you do, read Gaiman’s forward and questions at the end too. A fiver out of five buttons....I mean stars.
