When Coraline steps through a door in her familys new house, she
finds another house, strangely similar to her own (only better). At
first, things seem marvelous. The food is better than at home, and
the toy box is filled with fluttering wind-up angels and dinosaur
skulls that crawl and rattle their teeth. But theres another mother
there and another father, and they want her to stay and be their
little girl. They want to change her and never let her go. Coraline
will have to fight with all her wits and all the tools she can find
if she is to save herself and return to her ordinary life.
This beloved tale has now become a visual feast. Acclaimed artist
