Coraline, by Neil Gaiman

All Hallow's Read!
Give a book for Halloween!

While exploring her new house, Coraline discovers that a door that once went nowhere now goes to another version of her home, with another mother and father—who have been waiting just for her. [Image shows a girl locking a door while a cat looks on] This incredibly spooky book is one of my favorites of all time. Spookiness: 4/5

Spooky elements: Sewing. Buttons and sewing. I don't want to give too much away, but it gives me the heebie-jeebies. Also a thing that wants to take you from your parents and keep you forever, but that is nothing compared to the buttons.

Good for: This book is just excellent. I'd recommend it to anybody. While very spooky, the book is still good for the younger crowd—clever Coraline always keeps her head, and that makes it much easier to be brave on her behalf.

I am ashamed to say I saw this movie and never read the book. I understand if you never want to talk to me again.

We can still talk, but you will have to rectify this as soon as possible.
