Subject: Hey! Freaky Book Alert!

Written By: Ripp on 03/05/04 at 01:10 p.m.

Ever read a book called Coraline? It's really freaky. Its about this girl named coraline finding a key, and unlocking this door one day. She enters a new world and finds the door not there anymore. So she enters a verrrrrrry identical house of hers, and Coraline comes face to face with talking animals, and her psyco mom (to put it nicely). Only the love of her real mom could save her. So Coraline and the other-world mom have a fight. She gets chucked into a cupboard. By the way, if you dont have black button eyes, they tear out your eyeballs and replace them with black buttons. So she gets chucked in a cupboard. There are all these other children who were past people who lived in the house and found the door. But their eyes are already torn out and not replaced with buttons, so they cant see. That's about as far as i read.

It's a book for 8 year olds.

Think about reading it?

Dude you want freaky kid stories read some Hans Christian Anderson.  My mom always used to read those to me when I was little, and I don't know maybe it was the illustrations but "The Nightingale" for some reason gave me nightmares.  
Ok so maybe not as extreme as a psychotic-mother story, but to a kid who gets scared easily, HCA is no fun.
