I finished Coraline and am reading Nim's Island. Coraline reminded me a lot of the movie Monster House. Kind of a weird scary book for kids. It was interesting. I'm looking forward to the movie, should be dark though.
Nim's Island, I wanted to read before the movie came out - so far, I'm really enjoying it. After running a few of my elementary kids' bookfairs, I thought I should read a few of the books so I can recommend them to parents.
