My friend Hannah (hi Hannah!) was all, You should read this book, but you should read it in the daytime, because it’s creepy. And yes, it is creepy. The other-mother, after all, tries to sew buttons onto Coraline’s eyes. But CREEPIER FAR ARE THE ILLUSTRATIONS! I AM TRYING FRANTICALLY TO FIND SOME ONLINE SO YOU TOO CAN BE CREEPED OUT! IT IS NOT HAPPENING!!!!!!!! Consider yourself spared.
