Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Reviewed by: Emiline

Even the smallest of doors can unlock big mysteries and grave danger… 
 Coraline finally has something exciting happen in her dull life, but not necessarily a good exciting. She opens a doorway to the other world where her “other mother” is.  Her “other mother” is a gruesome creature who tries to keep her in the other world.  She is so malicious that she locks Coraline’s parents up where Coraline can not find them. 
Will Coraline escape the other world?

     First of all, I would recommend Neil Gaiman’s Coraline to readers who seek spooky books.  Coraline’s adventure are full of scary twists and creepy creatures.  I liked how one of the creatures told Coraline that she could have everything she wanted when she was in the other world.  But Coraline replied, “I don’t want everything I want.” I love the way she reacts to people.

I give Coraline  FIVE MONSTERS!!!!!!


  1. This is a great book. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. Coraline is deliciously creepy and so well written. I love Neil Gaiman! And this is the perfect book to read in October. Nice review, Emiline!

  3. I loved Coraline! It is spooky and creepy- but so fabulous! We recently reviewed Juniper Berry on our blog and think that fans of Coraline will enjoy it. Have you read Juniper Berry yet?
