Coraline was adapted and illustrated by P. Craig Russell. In this comic book, Coraline finds a door in her new house that takes her to another world. This new world seems better; great food, more toys, nicer parents. These parents call themselves her other mother and father. They seem kind, but Coraline soon discovers that they plan to sew buttons on her eyes and keep her soul locked away. When she tries to return to her original parents they are gone. Coraline must play a game against her other mother in a race to find her parents and save the souls of the other children.

This comic book is based off the original book Coraline, by Neil Gaiman. The comic book takes you visually through Coraline's adventures in her house. I have read the original book as well and I found the comic to portray the story wonderfully. I really enjoyed the book and found the comic version of the story to be just as good. I would highly recommend reading the comic; and if you enjoy it you might even want to pick up the original book or watch the movie. I found all three enjoyable.
