☁ “This book is like Alice In Wonderland on steroids. Despite it being a children’s book, I found it quite spooky, but fabulous too. The narrative is styled to be an adult’s voice though we know the thoughts and feelings of only Coraline, which adds to the atmosphere and is a nice change to the usual child-narrated story. I can’t look at my daughter’s La La Loopsy doll and her button eyes at all without thinking about this book!” –Rachel
