MISS SPINK & MISS FORCIBLE'S APARTMENT
-Coraline and her parents are renting out a section of an old home. Just moved in.
-In the book they are in England but in the movie they're in Oregon, USA.
-Coraline enjoys exploring the ground of her new home, and plans to grow a garden out back.
-In the movie, she finds the house itself to be very boring.
-His apartment is above the Jones's. He claims to have a mouse circus up there.
-Doesn't invite Caroline in because he claims the circus to be a secret until it is finished.
-He tells Coraline that his mice warn her to not "go through the door"
-Apartment below the Jones's. Serves Coraline tea and old taffy.
-They also stuff their deceased dogs and stack their bodies on shelves.
The Other Mother created only the Pink Palace and surrounding grounds. In the back is a garden with flowers that make up Coraline's face. The Other Father decorated this garden in the movie but the garden does not exist in the book.
The other apartment is lively where the other father and mother spend time to entertain Coraline. Once the other mother feels irritated and betrayed by Coraline, the world starts to degrade and become creepy.
The other mother takes her real parents and hides them so that Coraline stays in the other world. Coraline makes a deal that if she wins the "game", the other Mother must return her parents and her back to the real world. If she loses, Coraline must sew her eyes and be the other Mother's daughter. In the game, Coraline must race against time to find the Ghost Children's eyes in the movie and souls in the book.
- In the other world, Bobinski invites Caroline into his apartment to see the mouse circus prepared for her. This blows her away, but later the mice are used against her in battle.
When Coraline arrives at the ladies' apartment, she finds a theatre to be in its place. In the theatre in the book she finds an audience of dogs and they explain the whole situation to her. Unlike in the movie, where she shows up with the black cat and hes the one to explain it to her.
-Coraline Jones and her parents move into an old home. The house is split into three apartments, the other two are taken up by some wacky neighbors. Coraline is very bored, and her parents often ignore her.
-One day she curiously came across a door, which her mother unlocked to reveal a brick wall.
-Later she returns to the door to find that it leads to the "other world". In this world, her other mother and other father are more fun and interesting to Coraline, as well as her neighbors.
-Her other mother turns out to be evil and has been plotting to trap Coraline's soul, adding to her collection of childrens' souls that she has gathered over the years.
-Coraline's parents are eventually trapped as well, and she makes a deal with her other mother to save her family, which she accomplishes in the end.
EYEBALLS VS. SOULS
Wybie's personality is nervous but yet adventurous he seems to have a liking for strange things
Wybie also never appeared in the book version, the only reason why he was added was so that when Coraline spoke to her self out loud it wasn't to make her seem crazy
Yes, its a great read as well as a great movie. You would not miss out on a whole lot by only watching the movie, although you would have extra characters in the movie. If you want a more descriptive version obviously go for the book.
In the book, the children ask Coraline to find their souls using the stone she obtained from Miss Spink and Forcible. In the movie, Coraline uses the stone to find their eyeballs to free their souls. Their souls are trapped in the form of objects. In the book, the objects are three marbles where as in the movie, the objects are a bouncy ball, shift knob, and ring.
At the end of the book and movie, Coraline's victory goes unnoticed as her parents do not remember being kidnapped by the other mother. They simply return home as if nothing happened. In the book, she lures the Other Mother's escaped hand to the well where it falls down. In the movie, Wybie comes to her rescue and crushes the hand with a rock.
