Okay, now that I'm done with the sports analogies...in my humble opinion, sometimes they tend to "tweak" a little too much. Just think back to one (of I'm sure many) that you've read before viewing and remember all of the "that's not what happened" moments you experienced.
The grand silver screen can also act as a catalyst for getting books more exposure. It can instantly bring old and new titles alike to the forefront of reading lists today.

Both her "other" parents want nothing more than to play games and have fun with her; the neighbors put on stage shows for their many dogs.

She can feel that something is very off about this "other" world, especially her "other" mother with her black button eyes. What darkness lurks behind those doll-like eyes? Will Coraline succumb to their nefarious plans?

Until next time...happy reading!
