Book Vs Movie

Coraline”

Neil Gaiman’s Classic Novella Vs the Henry Selick Film

What would you do if your mother and father all of a sudden became entirely different (and scary) people? Coraline Jones is a young English girl who moves to an old house that is filled with interesting characters (such as Miss Spink, Miss Forcible and Mr. Bobo,) loving (yet kind of absent) parents and a bricked-up door leading to an adventure which tests the might and ingenuity of our heroine. (Spoiler--we really love this book & movie here!)

Coraline, written by illustrious author Neil Gaiman, was originally published in 2002 though he had been working on it since the 1980s in honor of his daughters Holly & Maddy. In fact, he originally sent to his editor in 1991 who deemed the theme “too scary” for kids. Thankfully, Gaiman kept working on it and the novel was awarded the Hugo Award for Best Novella in 2003. (The graphic novel featuring illustrations by P. Craig Russell is a real treat as well!)

Director Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas and James & the Giant Peach) helmed the 2009 film which was nominated as Best Animated Feature at the 2010 Academy Awards. A visual feast for the eyes, the movie Coraline takes the tale to a whole other level.
