I wonder if I should have read the book first. Ah well. Ever forward.
Also I wonder if the illustrator has children of his own, because Coraline was drawn waaaay too old for the story. It kept taking me out-of-world but it wasn't a deal-breaker.
Either way, a good story, pretty creepy, no real bells or whistles; as with most fairy tales you can see the dominoes being set up. Still, a fine way to spend an hour.
