Waterstones Says

Twinkling with gothic menace and dark subtext, Gaiman’s deliciously creepy fantasy mines childhood displacement and sinister new environments to create a startlingly original and unnerving novel. Ominous prophecies in the tea leaves and alternate parents with black button eyes infuse this strange, poignant work with a singular literary aura.

The bewitching tenth-anniversary edition of the classic children's novel Coraline by Neil Gaiman, featuring spellbinding illustrations from Chris Riddell and an exclusive new introduction by the author 'I was enthralled' - Philip Pullman There is something strange about Coraline's new home. It's not the mist, or the cat that always seems to be watching her, nor the signs of danger that Miss Spink and Miss Forcible, her new neighbours, read in the tea leaves. It's the other house - the one behind the old door in the drawing room. Another mother and father with black-button eyes and papery skin are waiting for Coraline to join them there. And they want her to stay with them. For ever. She knows that if she ventures through that door, she may never come back. This deliciously creepy, gripping novel is packed with glorious illustrations by Chris Riddell, and is guaranteed to delight and entrance readers of all ages.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'I was looking forward to Coraline and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I was enthralled. This is a marvellously strange and scary book' - Philip Pullman

'If any writer can get the guys to read about the girls, it should be Neil Gaiman. Coraline is a dreamlike adventure. For all its gripping nightmare imagery, this is actually a conventional fairy story with a moral' - The Daily Telegraph

“100% Wierd and Wonderful”

This was quite frankly one of the strangest books I have ever read, but at the same time it was one of the best. It's truly amazing how one author can pack so much into such a small novel; from the seemingly... More

“Witty and sarcastic! ”

This is my first Neil Gaiman book. My sister had to read it for university and it spiked my interest so I picked it up.
And I loved it.
Gaiman is so...sarcastic. I guess that's the only way to describe the... More

“Fantastic and creepy”

A wonderful book filled with rich and colorful imaginations, at times dark. I would not recommend for the smaller children because it may be a little too creepy for them.
