Coraline Chapter 6 Summary
When Coraline wakes up, she's confused and disoriented. Then she remembers what happened and knows she's in the other world.
She gets dressed and finds a lot of really cool clothes that she'd love to have at home.
Coraline puts the stone that Miss Spink and Miss Forcible gave her in her pocket; as she does this, she notices that her head starts to clear up a little. Finally, something good.
Coraline's other mother is busy fixing the doors to keep the cat out, so she decides to talk to her other father instead.
He looks sort of tired and weird today. He tells Coraline that her other mother "made" the house and the grounds and then waited for Coraline. Talk about planning ahead.
Her other father refuses to say more, so Coraline goes exploring and finds a strange snow globe with two people inside it.
She then goes outside and walks to the edge of the world the other mother had created: beyond the house and the yard there is just mist and... nothingness. So it's not even a whole world.
The cat comes to talk to Coraline again, but she gets upset when it chases after a rat and torments it before eating it. Not cool, cat.
Coraline goes back inside and looks for her parents in the mirror again, but they aren't there. That's no help.
Her other mother comes up behind her and says they should play a game, and Coraline notices that the other mother doesn't have a reflection in the mirror. Whoa.
Coraline tells the other mother that she wants her real parents back.
The two argue back and forth for a while.
Finally, the other mother gets fed up: she opens up the mirror and puts Coraline inside. Uh oh.
She tells Coraline she can come out when she's learned her manners and is ready to be a loving daughter. Now that's what we call a nasty time out.
