Coraline Jones is a cleverly written children's book, which makes it plain that there is no place like home. One dreary summer day a bored Coraline finds a locked door in her home that opens onto a brick wall. That is, it opens onto a brick wall when her mother is the one who opens the door. Later, Coraline opens the door and steps into an alternate world, where her parents are strange, to say the least. When she steps back into her flat, her parents are gone and she must rescue them from the "other mother".
