Literary Analysis of Coraline

Coraline as a novel follows the home/away/home pattern. In The Pleasures of Childrens Literature, Perry Nodelman and Mavis Reimer describe the home/away/home pattern as a narrative structure in which a character becomes unhappy at home, journeys to another place, has both exciting and dangerous adventures that challenges them to grow, and returns to the comfort of home with newfound knowledge. If you choose this topic, explore the role of the home/away/home pattern within Coraline, and come to a conclusion about the importance of this pattern within the novel.
