The Absolute Death
Gaiman is said to be the Father of modern comics. One of his earlier works, "Black Orchid" was turned into a graphic novel by DC comics. Gaiman's writing style crosses most genre boundaries. He has become famous for the mixing of the normal and fantasy worlds that would normally be divided. http://www.neilgaiman.com/p/About_Neil/Biography http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/e/e1/StardustGaimanbookcover.jpg/200px-StardustGaimanbookcover.jpg http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-tu1-u9037y8/UHqKmHK9CYI/AAAAAAAAGt4/Q2smyGcN0VI/s1600/Neil+Gaiman.jpg Coraline moves to a new home Finds the door to the other world

Outraged when Coraline declines and returns home
Tries to prevent Coraline's return, forcing her to stay Portrayal of Children Published in 2002
Children given full credit
portrayed as innocent and curious also cunning and capable but still needing guidance
Coraline uses her wits to outsmart the Other Mother and save her parents The parents are shown as dull and unimaginative, opposite to the children.
-shows that imagination is lost with age
-romanticized sense of childhood
-Mrs. Sphink and Mrs. Forcible seem jealous of her youth
-the Other Father takes pity on her
-Coraline's parents are very dull and disinterested
-the other mother wishes to be youthful and so she traps and eats children
-Since Coraline is still a child she can defeat the Other Mother by challenging her to a game The Cat The stray black cat Coraline meets in the beginning of the novel accompanies her in her travels to the other world. He is somewhat omniscient as he claims he can travel through
both worlds whenever he
pleases and he gives helpful insight
to Coraline as she navigates the new
world. He also warns her about the
other mother though at first she does
not head his warning. It is also because of the cat that she was able to escape the other mother after their confrontation.
