Publisher's Summary

In Coraline's family's new flat are twenty-one windows and fourteen doors. Thirteen of the doors open and close. The fourteenth is locked, and on the other side is only a brick wall, until the day Coraline unlocks the door to find a passage to another flat in another house just like her own.

Only it's different...

At first, things seem marvelous in the other flat. The food is better. The toy box is filled with wind-up angels that flutter around the bedroom. But there's another mother, and another father, and they want Coraline to stay with them and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.

Other children are trapped there as well, lost souls behind the mirrors. Coraline is their only hope of rescue. She will have to fight with all her wits if she is to save the lost children, her ordinary life, and herself.

  • Hugo Award Winner, Best Novella, 2003
  • Nebula Award Winner, Best Novella, 2003

"An electrifyingly creepy tale likely to haunt young readers for many moons." (Publishers Weekly)
"The story is odd, strange, even slightly bizarre, but kids will hang on every word...and they will love being frightened out of their shoes. This is just right for all those requests for a scary book." (School Library Journal)
"A magnificently creepy story...for stouthearted kids who love a brush with the sinister, Coraline is spot on." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "Muy buena historia"

    Muy interesante la historia, muy bien narrada por el autor, en mi opinion la pelicula si le hizo justicia al adaptar fiel mente el relato pero con un tono mas infantil. No me dio miedo.

    Story
    "Creepy, fun read"
    What did you like best about this story?

    One thing that I particularly liked about this book is that Gaiman made it creepy and scary in a way that transcends age. If I'd been a kid, it probably would have scared me. As an adult, it creeped me out in all the best ways.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did.


    Any additional comments?

    Neil Gaiman has a wonderful voice, particularly when he's simply narrating as opposed to reading a character's words. I love listening to him read his work.

    "Coralline"

    I enjoyed this book was that I enjoyed the movie. I think this would make good children's reading. Of course the moral is you never know what you have till you lose it

    "Book is always better than the movie"

    I love how simular they tried to make the movie but you can never beat reading the book. The fact it's narrated by Neil Gaiman himself, and it sounds great, is a plus. Good book to clean your palette of a lengthy book. Never gets old.

    "Unique story"

    First exposure to this story was a an animated movie that we had stumbled upon. Both book and movie true to each other and are wonderful descriptive writing. The story is captivating and fresh. This should appeal to multiple ages.

    Story
    "Love Coraline!"

    Neil Gaiman manages to write the sort of creepy that seems charming on the surface, but once the story lingers and resonates it grows more horrifying - yet still I'm charmed! The whole idea of "The Other Mother" makes me shudder. Does she want something to love, or something to eat? Neil Gaiman has become one of my favourite writers because of his ability to deepen meaning with a seemingly casual line of dialogue. His writing is wonderful, and his narration enjoyable. He has a lovely voice.
