I know it’s creepy but it is supposed to be. I’ve been to the Coraline website, to the Other Mother’s workshop and buttoned my eyes of course. It’s fantastic – you can choose from several types of button. The website is really cool. I can’t wait to see the film. I should probably explain that Coraline is a young adult book by Neil Gaiman about a young girl who discovers another world through a disused door in her house. Through the door she finds the Other Mother who is perfectly wonderful except she has buttons for eyes and wants to do the same to Coraline. It’s been made into a stop motion film by the guy who did The Nightmare Before Christmas and James And The Giant Peach. There’s even a knitting pattern on the website in Coraline’s bedroom. In the film Coraline wears a tiny blue sweater/jumper with stars on that was knitted in beautiful tiny scale by a lady called Althea Crome and they have put a pdf for download of a person sized version of Coraline’s sweater/jumper.
