Special Sub-Topic: "Coraline"
|What do many people call Coraline?|
Caroline. She hates being called this, much like I hate being called Katie!
|What do her parents do?|
work on computers. This means they're at home a lot.
|Where is the door that leads nowhere?|
the drawing room. It usually leads onto a brick wall.
|Who lives in the basement?|
Miss Spink and Miss Forcible. Mister Bobo is the strange old man who lives upstairs.
|What does the strange old man upstairs say he is training?|
a mouse circus. The mice are rats in the Other House and are not very nice creatures at all!
|What does Coraline hate?|
her father's recipes. She won't eat what her father cooks because he's always making "recipes".
|Who helps Coraline?|
the cat. The cat talks to her and warns her of everything her Other Mother is trying to do.
|What does her Other Mother have instead of eyes?|
Black buttons. Very spooky; as Terry Pratchett says on the cover "you will never think about buttons in quite the same way again".
|Where does she meet the other children?|
in the mirror. They are other children that the Other Mother captured long ago. One of them seems Victorian, and another has wings and eats only flowers.
|When the children were hidden, what did their eyes resemble?|
marbles. Her parents are hidden in a snowglobe, and the ornaments guess was inspired by Oz.
