Although there are some things one could niggle about, that the book is not at all scary or that the emotions of the characters especially Coraline's are not well described, we all should too keep in mind that 'Coraline' is a children's book. I don't say that only children are allowed to read this book but I'm saying that Neil Gaiman wrote it for his daughters. So the thought behind this book was that kids of 8-12 years of age will mainly read his story. And if I keep that in mind 'Coraline' is extremely creepy. It also is amazingly written and tells a fantastic story full of bravery and the love of a little girl towards her real family. Besides all that the journey of Coraline inside this other world is a fantastic story to read. This world has moving toys, talking animals, an evil mother, ghosts, dog-bats and big black buttons. I also really enjoy the thought of a mouse orchestra and because of that I loved that one scene in the movie that was directed by Henry Selick!

The day after they moved in,
Coraline went exploring....
In Coraline's family's new flat are twenty-one windows and fourteen doors. Thirteen of the doors open and close.
The fourteenth is locked, and on the other side is only a brick wall, until the day Coraline unlocks the door to find a passage to another flat in another house just like her own.
Only it's different.
At first, things seem marvelous in the other flat. The food is better. The toy box is filled with wind-up angels that flutter around the bedroom, books whose pictures writhe and crawl and shimmer, little dinosaur skulls that chatter their teeth. But there's another mother, and another father, and they want Coraline to stay with them and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.
Other children are trapped there as well, lost souls behind the mirrors. Coraline is their only hope of rescue. She will have to fight with all her wits and all the tools she can find if she is to save the lost children, her ordinary life, and herself.
