Just finished Neil Gaiman's Coraline.

The story was full of dark humor and some wonderful pen and ink drawings by the incomparable Dave McKean.

The story reminded me a lot of Clive Barker's The Thief Of Always, but nicer. And I believe that I liked Coraline's tenacity and straight-forwardness much more than the protagonist of Thief.

Despite the fact that the story is an "all ages" story, there is a lot of depth here. A fun scary read.
