Greta says: "Coraline is a very original telling of the story of a girl who thinks the grass is greener…on the other side of the wall. It’s creepy and profound and well written."

"I don't WANT whatever I want. Nobody does. Not really. What kind of fun would it be if I just got everything I ever wanted?"
-- Coraline (page 118).
Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
