Coraline is a movie based on an excellent book by Neil Gaiman, and this visual companion offers a wealth of behind-the-scenes images and information about the making of the movie. The stop-motion technique used to create the movie's sets and characters is a painstaking, detail-oriented process which in this case took years before the movie was complete. This guide has interviews with creators, cast and crew, as well as many concept drawings and a jackpot of other neat information.

Have you ever wondered what happens at the Adult Reference Desk? So have I! Well, today I decided to find out. I had to wear a disguise, because I heard that some grown-ups are afraid of bears. Do you think I fooled them? I logged into the computer...and waited. Do you know what? Grown-ups ask a lot of the same questions as you do. They are looking for a book that they want to read or a movie that they want to watch. Although, usually they've heard about this book or movie from the TV or the radio, where you guys usually hear about it from a friend or at school. Grown-ups need help doing things on the computer too! The big difference between kid questions and grown-up questions, is that sometimes grown-up questions have to do with things like taxes and doctors and college classes. The librarians that work on the Adult Reference Desk are really smart. They can always help the grown-ups find the answers, just like in the Children's Library! I don't think I was much help though. My paws are too clumsy to type very well, and you have to be able to talk to answer questions. Oh well! It's back to the Children's Library I go. Until the next adventure...
