Half World by Hiromi Goto (Southern Tohoku Research Institute for Neuroscience, Southern Tohoku General Hospital, Fukushima-ken, Japan)
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Melanie Tamaki is human?but her parents aren?t. They are from Half World, a Limbo between our world and the afterlife, and her father is still there. When her mother disappears, Melanie must follow her to Half World?and neither of them may return alive. Imagine "Coraline" as filmed by the Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki ("Howl's Moving Castle"), or Neil Gaiman collaborating with Charles de Lint. Half World is vivid, visceral, unforgettable, a combination of prose and images that will haunt you.
