First Sentence: " Coraline discovered the door a little while after they moved into the house."

Last Sentence: "...telling the world that summer was almost done."

I enjoyed this creepy little book. I would say that this story about a little girl who finds an alternate world to her real one with button eyed "other parents" is spooky but not scary! I am not about scary books which is why I can boast that I have never read a Stephen King novel. But a little creepy, I can handle. Coraline is a wonderfully brave and clever little girl and makes for a great hero in the story. She longs for adventure and attention and gets both when she opens the hidden door! She finds herself in the position of finding and rescuing 3 lost little souls and her own real parents with twists and surprises around every corner on her mission. Will she succeed? Only those who read the book will know!


  1. Good review Kim. I just finished this one too and you know I did find it kind of scary. I guess maybe really creepy and I call it scary. lol.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed it, Kim :)

  3. I'm reading this with my daughter right now. We're still in the beginning. We were both sort of hoping for scary, but we'll take spooky, too. :) Great review!
