When Coraline steps through a door in her family's new house, she finds another house, strangely similar to her own (only better). At first, things seem marvelous. The food is better than at home, and the toy box is filled with fluttering wind-up angels and dinosaur skulls that crawl and rattle their teeth.

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 all the tools she can find if she is to save herself and return to her ordinary life.

This beloved tale has now become a visual feast. Acclaimed artist P. CraigRussell brings Neil Gaiman's enchanting nationally bestselling children's book Coraline to new life in this gorgeously illustrated graphic novel adaptation.

This book was not like the movie, but was very alike it. Coraline just moved into her new house, when she finds a door that leads to "nowhere". While Coraline is sleeping, she goes into the door that is now an entrance to a new world. The world is made by her other mother, who traps her. My favourite part was at the end when Coraline finally gets away with the cat who does not have a name.

I would rate this book 4 and a half stars because I thought that it was very interesting and the book kept me reading. My favourite part of this book was when she played a game with the other mother. Coraline had to find the hearts of the ghosts and her parents. Overall, the only negative feedback that I would give about this book is I wish it had more detail.

This graphic novel version of Gaiman's masterpiece does an adequate job of conveying the other-worldliness of the tale, but the film is a better visual representation.

I liked this book a lot! Just a warning: ot is a graphic novel, like a comic book, so if you are into chapter books then I wouldn't suggest it for you. But it has a very good story.

I absolutely loved the movie, which led me to the book which is ten times better. The author technique of this book is very unique, which makes it a deliciously satisfying book.
