Coraline is a little girl that is alwasy getting called "Caroline" by the people she lives around. Her family moves to a big house that has been turned into four different appartments. In the basement two old actresses live, and in the attic is a man who is claiming to train mice to be circus preformers.
One day when Coraline is exploring she find a door that is locked, when she ask her mother about she says it goes to the other loft that no one lives in. But Coraline is presistant so her mother gives her the key to explore. At first she finds the door is blocked up with bricks, then she goes to bed and the door opens and reveals a long hallway.
Little does she know what's at the end could change the rest of her life.
Coraline is a children's horror story, however I do think it is a little to much for children. The drawings are really good, they are what I pictured the characters to be. The only thing I had is that there were parts where they sounded, especially Coraline, talked like she was English or something. I think the setting should have been more clear, but this was a good book!
