Gaiman, N. and McKean, D. (illus.). (2002). Coraline. NY: Harper Collins Publishers.
YA Lit / Sci-Fi? Horror? Fantasy? Adventure?

 Since I absolutely adored Gaiman's The Graveyard Book, I snagged this from Half Price Books and didn't put it down until I was done.  I didn't see the movie, so I was unfamiliar with the storyline.  This is a fascinating, creative, and creepy story that is very easy to visualize, but even moreso with the aid of Dave McKean's illustrations.  Coraline is a brave and precocious little girl, and I don't think her parents are worthy of her!  I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read and highly recommend it for young and old.
