Coraline: The Graphic Novel – Neil Gaiman, Russell P. Craig

CoralineCoraline by P. Craig Russell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Coraline discovered the door a little after they moved into the house.

When Coraline steps through a door in her family’s new house, she finds another house strangely similar to her own (only better). But there’s another mother there and another father, and they want her to stay and be their little girl. They want to “change” her and never let her go.

Acclaimed artist P. Craig Russell brings Neil Gaiman’s enchanting, nationally bestselling children’s book “Coraline” to new life in this gorgeously illustrated graphic novel adaptation.


I really liked the illustrated graphic novel version of Neil gaimans coraline. However the character of Coraline In this edition is just not how I imagined her in the original text. It was a lovely edition though and certainly worth a read as the illustrations are fantastic.
I also loved how much text their was in comparison to the illustrations. A lot of the time in graphic novels the content of the text is taken out because quite a lot of the description is not needed as it is presented within the images. However in this version there are still a lot of description of everything that is happening along with the dialogue, thoughts and images. I would reccomend to anyone that is a fan of the original coraline.

As always, happy reading,

Korie xx
