Reading this each night with my daughter, Zoe, before we go to bed. She finds it frightening and yet cannot wait to start each night. And I'm enjoying reading it as much as she is.Update after finishing it:I found the book really delightful. The ending few paragraphs were just beautiful, and my daughter enjoyed it very much, too. Being the father of a child who is just finishing here first year at kindergarten, I love the point about Coraline no longer being afraid of the new school year. I would recommend this for kids and adults who love an exciting adventure story, with smart writing.
