This was the third time I've read Coraline, and I loved it just as much as I did before. When Coraline Jones and her family move into a new apartment, despite the eccentric neighbors and big yard, Coraline gets bored quickly. She's read all her books, watched all her videos, and her parents never have time to play with her. So when Coraline finds a locked door in the drawing room, she's excited. It seems bricked up at first, but Coraline soon discovers that sometimes, the passage opens. It leads into a world quite like her own...but better. With talking animals, delicious food, and fun games, this world seems like a dream come true. But she has other parents there, who want to change her and make her to stay with them forever. Coraline soon realizes that some doors are best left closed...
