by Neil Gaiman
Keeping in line with our "not just for kids" theme, here is another horror classic that I feel compelled to recommend. If you'd like a bout of the knee-knocking heebie jeebies, then Neil Gaiman's Coraline is the genuine article. Gaiman is one of the most talented writers to emerge in the last decade and his foray into children's books does not disappoint. Coraline is edgy, dark, compelling stuff. For a compact short read, this contemporary fairytale packs a huge wallop--the story will stay with you long after the reading is done.
Don't miss this uniquely weird and creepy tale...
You will never feel the same about black buttons again!
Coraline moves into a new house with her parents and uncovers a hidden door. When she steps through it she discovers a world very much like her own except with a few disturbing differences. When her parents go missing, Coraline must find the courage to go back to this terrifying world and save them.
