Check out some great discussion questions from the Multnomah County Library about Coraline by Neil Gaiman. Neil Gaiman is the 2010 Honorary Chair of National Library Week and we'll be hosting a special book/movie discussion on Wednesday, April 14, 3:00 p.m. Check out a copy of the book in regular print or graphic novel, and then join us for a relaxing afternoon at the library!
Coraline's parents are too busy to play with her. She's on her own, and when she goes exploring in her new apartment she unlocks a door that leads to a different world. At first it looks familiar, even intriguing, but Coraline quickly learns that evil lurks there. Soon, Coraline is caught in a life or death challenge - to save herself, her family, and three lost children. It is an experience that will forever change her.
