Publisher Comments:

In Scarper Leeandrsquo;s world, parents donandrsquo;t make childrenandmdash;children make parents. Scarperandrsquo;s father is his pride and joy, a wind-powered brass construction with a billowing sail. His mother is a Bakelite hairdryer. In this world it rains knives, and household appliances have souls. There are also no birthdaysandmdash;only deathdays. Scarperandrsquo;s deathday is just three weeks away, and he clings to the mundane repetition of his life at home and high school for comfort. Rob Davisandrsquo;s dark graphic novel is an odyssey through a bizarre, distorted teenage landscape. When Scarperandrsquo;s father mysteriously disappears, he sets off with Vera Pike (the new girl at school) and Castro Smith (the weirdest kid in town) to find him. Facing home truths and knife storms at every turn, will Scarper even survive until his deathday?

Synopsis:

Coraline discovered the door a little after they moved into the house.

When Coraline steps through a door in her family's new house, she finds another house strangely similar to her own (only better). But there's another mother there and another father, and they want her to stay and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.

Acclaimed artist P. Craig Russell brings Neil Gaiman's enchanting, nationally bestselling children's book Coraline to new life in this gorgeously illustrated graphic novel adaptation.
