There is something strange about Coraline's new home.
It's not the mist, or the cat that always seems to be watching her, nor the signs of danger that Miss Spink and Miss Forcible, her new neighbours, read in the tea leaves.
It's the other house - the one behind the old door in the drawing room.
Another mother and father with black-button eyes and papery skin are waiting for Coraline to join them there. And they want her to stay with them. For ever. She knows that if she ventures through that door, she may never come back.

Review by martensgirl
The only Gaiman book I had read prior to Coraline was Good Omens, which he co-wrote with Pratchett. I the film Coraline and loved it; I only later realised it was based on one of Gaiman's books. I was a little disappointed and I am sorry to say that this was one of the few examples where the film is better that the book. It is still worth a read though, but I did not find it as chilling as the film.
