Coraline and Bridge to Terabithia are similar because in the story the characters both discover a different world. In the Bridge to Terabithia, Jesse Aaron's and his new friend Leslie discover a rope connected to a tree that leads to the other side of the river. Everyday after school they go into the “magical kingdom” that they imagined. In Coraline, a little girl named Coraline moved into a new house and found a secret doorway that leads to another world where her other mother and father live. In both books, the secret world is a place that both characters go to that no other person knows about.
Differences- The two books are different because Bridge to Terebethia is more of a fun, magical book and their "other world" is a good place. Leslie and Jesse make up their world in their head and Coraline isn't made up to her. Coraline is more of a scary, dramatic story. Coraline's other world is not a good place and takes her parents away from her.
I definitely will recommend these books to other people because they are both similar and people will never know what is going to happen next; either a bad or a good thing. Its definitely a book to escape the real world and imagine a whole other world. If you have read Coraline then try Bridge to Terebithia.
