CoralineeBook - 2009
In Coraline's family's new flat there's a locked door. On the other side is a brick wall—until Coraline unlocks the door . . . and finds a passage to another flat in another house just like her own.
The food is better there. Books have pictures that writhe and crawl and shimmer. And there's another mother and father there who want Coraline to be their little girl. They want to change her and keep her with them. . . . Forever.
Coraline is an extraordinary fairy tale/nightmare from the uniquely skewed imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman.

"I don't WANT whatever I want. Nobody does. Not really. What kind of fun would it be if I just got everything I ever wanted?"
-- Coraline (page 118).
Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
