This week’s Book of the Week is Coraline by Neil Gaiman. Gaiman is a prolific author of unique books for all different types and ages of readers. The chapter book version of Coraline was published in 2002, but the graphic novel version was released in 2008. The movie is coming out soon and it looks fantastic – take a sneak peek here.
Coraline is a dark horror fairy tale, about a girl who finds a secret door in her home, and finds her “other” family: a version of her parents with black buttons instead of eyes, with long scary fingers and fingernails, and a challenge to find her real parents again. Read one of the versions of the book – or both -then see the movie, play the upcoming video games, and see the play Off-Broadway this summer. Enjoy Coraline!
