When Coraline steps through a door in her family's new house, she finds another house, strangely similar to her own (only better). At first, things seem marvelous. The food is better than at home, and the toy box is filled with fluttering wind-up angels and dinosaur skulls that crawl and rattle their teeth.

But there's another mother there and another father, and they want her to stay and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go. Coraline will have to fight with all her wit and all the tools she can find if she is to save herself and return to her ordinary life.

This beloved tale has now become a visual feast. Acclaimed artist P. CraigRussell brings Neil Gaiman's enchanting nationally bestselling children's book Coraline to new life in this gorgeously illustrated graphic novel adaptation.

Why is a book written by Neil Gaiman also in here credited to P. Craig Russell?

Pretty creepy illustrations, but very great story. It was pretty hooking and I recommend you read it if you don't get creeped out too easily

It has the feel of a great children's book, which means that adults should enjoy it as well. It does not talk down to the children, nor does it seek to coddle or terrify them. It simply tells a story. The author remembers what it is to be a child and that is altogether too rare. After reading this I'll have to read the original.
