    I really enjoy the story of Coraline but the artwork just didn't do it for me

    I'd definitely recommend this version to reluctant readers Yeeees The real book isa REAL book but I'm talking about those kids who don't like to readI've got one of those and she loved this thingMy feeling is that if you can get them hooked on a good story no matter how you do it it's going to show them the possibilities between the pages of a book The graphic novel tells the same story as the book but with the added bonus of pictures DuhWho doesn't like pictures?Blind folks and snobs that's who If you're blessed enough to have a voracious little reader by all means hand them the novel Otherwise try thisGood story creepy yet child friendly art unicorns farting rainbowsRecommended

    Coraline is a wonderful novel; it’s full of mystery My head hurts when I think about what is actually happening Sure we can make guesses at the magic behind it but we will never fully be able to understand how it works This is part of the book’s greatness it will always remain elusive So the plot of Corlaine is superb; there’s no arguing that yet this comic adaption of it is just poor Why? Well it lacks colour Coraline has undertones of the gothic of the unusual of the untraceable The movie version captured this superbly partly through the weirdness of its soundtrack This however is bland tasteless and ordinary I felt nothing from it The basic story is here rendered in the most simplistic comic art I’ve seen in a while and that’s about it There is no sense of spookiness or otherworldliness; it just feels so basic This does not have the artistic flair that is associated with Gaiman comics Look at the Sandman series and look at the Sleeper in the Spindle The art is what it needs to be This here is plain Perhaps it’s because the film interpreted the novel in a different way one that makes me see Coraline as the animated version When I think of the character that is who I see I don’t see this contrasting version in the comic Coraline is well slightly weird Not a bad thing She’s uniue and in some regards a little bit of an outsider She is simply herself With the girl in the comic I don’t get that To reuse the word ordinary again that is all I get from her On a character level this failed drastically and on an artistic level it felt devoid of the essence of this story I really don’t recommend trying this Instead go watch the movie even if it changes the plot a little

    Project Learning English by myself through children's books I'd prefer that the illustrator draw Coraline younger In this book she's a pre teenager not a childCoraline narrating The air was alive with yellow wasps My dad stayed and got stung to give me time to run away His glasses had fallen off when he ran I only had the one sting on the back of my arm He had thirty nine stings all over himSo later that afternoon my dad went back again to the wasteland to get his glasses back He said if he left it another day he wouldn't be able to remember where they'd fallenAnd he said that wasn't brave of him just standing there and being stung It wasn't brave because he wasn't scared It was the only thing he could do But going back again to his glasses when he knew the wasps were there when he was really scared that was braveBecause when you're scared but you still do it anyway that's brave Pages 65 66 and 67

    Overall enjoyed it Wasn't the biggest fan of the artwork and felt the story lacked a little

    Nothing much is happening in the above picture the very first frame of the graphic novel edition of Coraline but it still manages to be foreboding and disuieting There are uite a few pictures like this in this book where so much is communicated with so little Even the style of the font and the layout can convey an otherworldly feeling of dread Look at that spiderSomething about that “scuttling” text just scuttles ShiverWhat of the story then? The story is great Coraline is about an 11 year old girl who moves into an old mansion with her parents She fancies herself an intrepid explorer one day her exploration of her new home leads her to a mysterious passage that leads to what appears to be a parallel universe where things may initially seem very similar but yet not uite the same as our world The first person Coraline meets in this dimension is a woman who claims to be her “Other Mother” She does resemble Coraline’s mother uite a bit except for her eyes which are made of black buttonsInitially she seems very nice and kind but Coraline soon finds that this “Other Mother” wants Coraline to stay with her permanently in this alternate mansion She even has a pair of black buttons and a sewing kit ready I read very few graphic novels probably less than four in my entire lifetime I do like them but I personally find regular novels to be better value especially in term of the time I spend reading them Still I bought Coraline because I saw the 2009 movie and thought it was great wonderfully scary for kids in a way that they enjoy I just wanted to share it with my little nephew The alternate dimension not really a parallel world is brilliantly conceived and the “Other” versions of the people from Coraline’s world are deliciously creepy I can not praise the artwork by P Craig Russell enough also the lettering by Todd Klein which greatly enhanced the artworkThe character of Coraline is very well written as is the creepy Other Mother also the snarky cat whose banter with Coraline is one of the book’s highlights Neil Gaiman is one of my favourite authors whose whimsical style tinge with darkness is right up my street I also love his sparkling dialogue and slightly odd humour If you like reading with kids and want to stimulate their imagination Coraline in any edition is highly recommended Of course there is nothing wrong with just buying it to read for yourselfNotes I did not even know that there is such an occupation as letterer not being very familiar with the graphic novels and comic books sceneThere is an interesting inversion motif in Coraline the mansion in our world and the very similar and also very different version of it in the other dimension the people behave in polar opposite manners; even Coraline’s name is somewhat unearthly a partial inversion of Caroline

    FLEE Flee while there's still air in your lungs and blood in your veins and warmth in your heart You need not heed the Shakespearian ghost children's disturbing warnings my weary traveler Alas It's not meant for you but for our sweet little Coraline A little girl who walked through a mysterious door to find a twisted reflection of her own world So we got a novella a stop motion movie a musical stage play and a graphic novel on Coraline So many versions Isn't that a bit too much?If the studio makes a live action movie I would be the first in line to watch it Because this is one of those stories that can be experienced over and over againThis adaptation of beloved Coraline by Craig Russell is faithful and fabulous It's exactly the same story and dialogues accompanied with great artwork I was a bit reluctant with the character designs in the initial panels as I had already been in love with the movie's character designs But as I finished the book I ended up loving this as much as I loved the movieAnd It is definitely creepy

    I've never read this as a kid and thank goodness I didn't This book would've given me nightmares There's a creepy uality to the other mother and the other world that would have haunted me Even now there are areas of the book that I read through very uickly As an adult I really appreciate Coraline's strength and bravery She is the kind of kid I was too afraid to be back in the dayYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

    I must confess that I've never read Neil Gaiman's Coraline but I have seen the adaptation and have been curious about how it'd work as a graphic novel As it turns out it's wonderfully creepy I expected Coraline to have bright blue hair and the story to be as whimsical as it is in the film but the graphic novel is realistic I don't think button eyes and the Other Mother will ever stop being creepy P Craig Russell's illustrations capture the weirdness perfectly I also reviewed this book over on Pretty Books
