“Coraline” by Neil Gaiman

30 May

TEEN LIBRARIAN'S REVIEW:

Gaiman is the author of "The Sandman" series of graphic novels, as well as general fiction works like "American Gods" and "Anansi Boys." Most of his stories deal with elements of the supernatural, and "Coraline" is no exception. Coraline and her very busy and preoccupied parents have just moved into a new flat (apartment) in England. A hidden key and a secret door lead Coraline to another world that looks like her own, but which is actually twisted and quite bad. When Coraline's parents get trapped there, it's up to Coraline to use her wits and her bravery to save her parents, free some imprisoned children (er, their souls, that is), and do battle with her evil "other mother." A good book if you like to be a little scared — but not too much. "Coraline" is just creepy enough to keep you reading!
