Summary: of the Chapter A New House Class 6
Coraline is the main character of the Novel ‘Coraline’. The concerned chapter is a part of the novel. Coraline and her parents move into large, odd house with expansive grounds. The parents work from home and give their daughter fairly little attention. Coraline is fidgety and in constant search of activities that will keep her involved and interested. On a particularly rainy day, Coraline is especially restless, because her mother will not let her explore outdoors. Conversations, toys, videos—nothing holds her attention for long. Finally, her father sets her off on an indoor adventure: counting everything blue in the house. While busy with it, Coraline discovers a bricked-up door that piques her interest momentarily. Later at night, Coraline tosses about in her bed, unable to sleep. She goes to inspect some strange noises that seem to be emanating from the hall. There, she thinks she sees some bizarre black, shadowy forms move about. She notices that the door which opened on to the wall is open, despite the fact that her mother had locked it in the morning. She returns to her bed, with more questions than answers. She dreams of little black shapes with red eyes and yellow teeth, under the Moon, singing a creepy song. Coraline is disturbed in her sleep; then she dreams of commercials. The chapter ends at this note.
