When Coraline explores her new home, she steps through a door and into another house just like her own . . . except that it's different. It's a marvelous adventure until Coraline discovers that there's also another mother and another father in the house. They want Coraline to stay with them and be their little girl. They want to keep her forever!

Coraline must use all of her wits and every ounce of courage in order to save herself and return home.

This isn't the best cover I've seen for this book, I actually prefer the Movie Tie-in one, but it's the one that was released here when I first bought this book.

Anyway, last Friday I started reading this book to my daughter. The intention was to read one chapter per night before bedtime, if she liked it. As it turned out, she LOVED it and we squeezed in several chapters during the week because she just had to know what happened next. Last night, we finished it. Still, she loved it and can't wait to watch the movie. By the looks of the trailer, they've added some stuff, which I think is fantastic.

At first I thought she might be a little scared about some of the things that happened to Coraline, but my daughter was intrigued all the way. Now she wants her own copy so she can read it again and again. I'm really glad that she enjoyed it because this is a fantastic story. It was also a lot of fun to enjoy - and chat about - the story with her after every chapter.

Now that I know her tastes tend to sit on the spooky side of the spectrum, what can we read together next... :D
