A number of years ago, when Neil was working on Coraline, he'd send me bits of it to read. It was, of course, intriguing in every sense. He asked me to phone him every few days and nag him to finish the story. I did just that. I'd call and he'd answer and I'd say things like "Did you work on Coraline today?" or "How much did you work on Coraline today?" or "What exactly did you do today?"
One day, he said "Please stop nagging me about Coraline. I'm beginning to dread your phone calls."
So I stopped nagging him and he eventually finished the book without any nagging. Or, at least without mine, which made me happy because I don't like nagging and because Coraline is an excellent book.
That said, here is Poppet's version of Coraline, so that now people nagging me to do a Poppet version of Coraline can stop. Though I imagine by tomorrow they'll be nagging me to finish something else.
I'm okay with that. Hope you like her.
