Coraline's family didn't own all of the house they just moved into, it was too big for that. Instead, they owned only part of the house. Miss spink and Miss Forcible owned the flat below Coraline's house and in the flat above Coraline's house is where a crazy old man with a big mustache lived, he told coraline he was training a mouse circus but wouldn't let anyone see it.
The next day, Coraline knew it was time to go exploring. Her mother and father were working so they wouldn't know if she did go. Coraline went to the kitchen, took some keys for rooms around the house and found this door, the door led her right back to her kitchen to find her mother cooking roasted chicken which was a surprise because Coraline's mother didn't like to cook.
Coraline's other mother and father made her the most delicious meal she has ever ate, they even gave Coraline her own chocolate cake with her name written on it. This was paradise for Coraline. Her other mother and father sat her down and gave her another gift "wow another gift"Coraline thought to herself, but it wasn't what she had expected, inside the box was two black buttons. "If you want to stay with us forever then you may sew these onto your eyes like us. We want whats best for you, so stay.
"I want to leave!" Coraline said. "Lets play a game then, you will have a day to find all spirts of the children I have killed and your parents. If you succced then you can go back to your other parents, but if you don't find them in time you will stay with me forever. Coraline stood in shock but she was was ready, she needed to go back to her real mother and father. "Now go Coraline, time is ticking." Coraline's other mother said with a smerk.
As coraline rembered each clue her other mother told her, one by one she found the spirts of the children, but she still couldn't find her mother and father. Time was ticking and Coraline screamed "Play fair" but there was no response. Coraline looked down at her clothes and thought to herself, "If I'm going to find my real parents I'm not going to find them wearing my other mothers clothes.
Coraline heard her other mother yell "Coraline sweetie where are you?" Coraline didn't know what do do but she knew time was up so she ran, she ran until somehow she made it back to the door that led right back to her mother and father, but her other mother had just seem her so before Coraline could slam the door behind her other mother she heard, "clink" of the key her other mother had that led right back to Coraline and her parents.
