Quote #10

He had his back to her, but she knew, just on seeing him, that his eyes, when he turned around, would be her father's kind gray eyes, and she crept over and kissed him on the back of his balding head. (12.12)

This sentence not only reminds us of the contrast between Coraline's real father and her other father (who sure doesn't have "kind gray eyes"). It's also a contrast with the the start of the novel, when Coraline's distracted father won't even look at her. So has her father changed, or just her perception of him?
