Coraline has just moved to a new house, and after acquainting herself with the neighbours, she sets about to ‘explore’ the place, for, you see, she is a self-acclaimed “explorer”. She finds the well she’s been warned to stay away from, just to know what to stay away from, and spends as much time outdoors […]
