Coraline is not the kind of girl to be put off by a sign of danger read in some tea-leaves or indeed a message sent to her by some very talented mice! No, she is the kind of girl who faces a challenge with bravery, intelligence and a lot of determination. Which is just as well because she is going to need all those skills, and more, in this wonderful, spooky tale of a girl caught on the wrong side of a door, with counterfeit parents who have buttons for eyes and who clearly do not intend to set her free. Read it if you dare! In this wickedly scary and brilliantly crafted story, Neil Gaiman has created a compelling novel that fascinates, frightens and surprises all at once. Neil is the best-selling author of American Gods and the hugely successful Sandman comics.
