Jamie This is one of my favorite books ever, and I love reading it to kids (at school). The kids are creeped out by it, too, and really relate to being less than thrilled with their parents yet willing to do anything for them. I always choke up when Coraline's mom says, "Well done, Coraline." I hated the movie, for the record, but I think that's because I adore the book so much. They tinkered with the plot unnecessarily, I thought.

Caitlinleah I totally agree! Was the cat not enough, they had to add the boy? And I will never forgive them for taking away the tea party at the end.
