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.

'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
