'I was looking forward to Coraline, and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I was enthralled. This is a marvellously strange and scary book'
Philip Pullman, Guardian||'Sometimes funny, always creepy, genuinely moving, this marvellous spine-chiller will appeal to readers from nine to ninety'
Books for Keeps||'If any writer can get the guys to read about the girls, it should be Neil Gaiman. His new novel Coraline is a dreamlike adventure'
Daily Telegraph||'This book will send a shiver down your spine, out through your shoes and into a taxi to the airport. It has the delicate horror of the finest fairy tales, and it is a masterpiece. And you will never think about buttons in quite the same way again'
Terry Pratchett
