Coraline

Coraline - Dave McKean, Neil Gaiman For a children's book, I found this to be delightfully unique. It's easy to draw similarities to Alice and Wonderland, since that's surely what the author was going for. The writing style is fairly simple; the author does an interesting thing where he never really describes his characters, but the odd new world you are introduced to is interesting and takes over the characterization. It's is a fun, creepy book that's perfect for a stormy afternoon.
