Deliciously creepy! (It’s been a while since I read this, but I wanted to add it to my list here for the record.) Coraline’s decision between her real life and the duplicate she discovers becomes a fight for her survival as “creepy” mom and dad want to keep her. I need to reread this. Illustrations by Dave McKean enhance the creepiness.
Neil Gaiman, if you didn’t know, has done the Sandman series of graphic novels. Coraline received many awards.
