Coraline released in US

The US hardcover of Coraline was released today. Unlike the CD and the tape, which were special order only at both Barnes & Noble and Borders (only the independent bookstores seemed to have it in stock, at least in New York), the book is showing up at the major chain stores.

Neil is doing a reading of Coraline at First Congregational Church of Berkeley tonight; more information is in the San Francisco Chronicle and at Cody’s Books
