Coraline: Graphic Novel

1967070From Goodreads:    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. Craig Russell brings Neil Gaiman's enchanting nationally bestselling children's book Coraline to new life in this gorgeously illustrated graphic novel adaptation.

My Thoughts:

-    This wasn't my favorite adaptation of Coraline, but it was okay.

-    I didn't care for the art style very much. It didn't capture the mood and story.

-    I liked the original much better. The pictures in the original book are more satisfying.

-    The story is still really fun and creeptastic.


  1. Well that's not good if the pictures in a GN weren't as good as the pictures in the original. I've only seen the movie of this one. It kind of creeped me out.

  2. I read this a while back. I went to find the review for it but I didn't have one. I looked at goodreads and saw I gave it 5 stars. But I read it in 2008 so I can't remember it at all. Maybe that's a bad sign.
