coraline posterIf you haven’t yet read Neil Gaiman’s book Coraline, it needs to be at the top of your holiday reading list. If you haven’t read anything by Neil Gaiman than here is your holiday reading list, that’s right, just print it out right now and take it to your local bookshop or library and get started. Don’t worry, there is a little something for everyone: even some picture books for the kiddies, graphic novels for the adults AND audio books for those who “don’t have time to read”.

Last year brought the wonderful film adaptation of Gaiman’s Stardust, and with 2009 comes Coraline directed by Henry Selick (director of Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach!!) An official trailer has now been released, and it looks spectacular. All of the creepy, dark, magical and wonderful that you would expect from such a great duo! Apparently it was filmed entirely in 3D.

February 2009, mark it on your calendar people!
