This is the Graphic Novel Adapted & Illustrated by P. Craig Russell
Reviewed by Tilly, 8yrs. old - Tween Book Reviewer and Sometimes Writer
I love reading comics - it's like a cartoon in a book! When my sister told me Coraline was available in a graphic novel, I couldn't wait to buy it. When I had enough pocket money, my mum helped me get on Amazon and order the book. It got delivered all the way from America to Australia!
Ordering books online is fun because it arrives in a package! My own really cool Amazon cardboard box (kids like mail).
P. Craig Russell has done a really good job with the illustrations. I think Coraline is very pretty in this book (I like that she has brown hair instead of blue hair like in the movie).
About this book... it's scary. In a way like The Wizard of Oz. Coraline is like Dorothy because they both started out wanting something other than they already have (for Coraline it's her parents and for Dorothy it was her world). Coraline does not like her parents because they are always working and they never do stuff with her, so she finds a different world and also finds she has an 'other mother'.
This book is a horror story (of course because there are buttons as eyes) and also has a quest in it, Coraline must find the eyes of lost souls to free them (not as gross as it sounds).
This is now one of my favourite books and I would rate it at least 4 stars out of 5.
