最近京东做活动,英文原版书买200减100,于是我立刻买了Coraline原版英文书,并且在当天晚上一口气看完了,但是有些伤感的是和电影真的不一样!没有了歪脖子男孩Wybie!我还在淘宝买了一个Wybie呢!

这么有趣的角色竟然是电影编剧的独创!!电影比小说情节更丰满,算是青出于蓝而胜于蓝吧!好了,回归正题,我们接着来看鬼妈妈的故事。

The day after they moved in, Coraline went exploring.She explored the garden.
搬完家的第二天卡萝琳去探险,她去了花园。

 

It was a big garden: at the very back was an old tennis court, but no one in the house played tennis and the fence around the court had holes in it and the net had mostly rotted away; there was an old rose garden, filled with stunted, flyblown rose bushes; there was a rockery that was all rocks; there was a fairy ring, made of squidgy brown toadstools which smelled dreadful if you accidentally trod on them.

花园非常大,深处有一个旧网球场,但是住这的人都不打网球,而且网球场的围栏有许多洞,网也快腐烂了。还有一个破玫瑰园,长着矮小的、肮脏的的玫瑰丛。还有一个假山,全部都是石头。还有一个蘑菇圈,由一丛潮湿松软的棕色的毒蘑菇组成,如果你不小心踩到了会散发出可怕的气味!


There was also a well. On the first day Coraline's family moved in, Miss Spink and Miss Forcible made a point of telling Coraline how dangerous the well was, and they warned her to be sure she kept away from it. So Coraline set off to explore for it, so that she knew where it was, to keep away from it properly.

还有一口井。卡萝琳一家搬过来的当天,史彬可小姐和福瑟帛小姐就对卡萝琳重点强调了这口井的危险性。她们警告卡萝琳一定要远离那口井。所以卡萝琳便出发去寻找这口井,这样就能知道它的位置,从而很好地避开它。


She found it on the third day, in an overgrown meadow beside the tennis court, behind a clump of trees - a low brick circle almost hidden in the high grass. The well had been covered over by wooden boards, to stop anyone falling in. There was a small knothole in one of the boards, and Coraline spent an afternoon dropping pebbles and acorns through the hole, and waiting, and counting, until she heard the plop as they hit the water, far below.

她在第三天找到了那口井,在网球场后面一个杂草丛生的地方。在树丛后面,低矮的砖块围成一圈,基本被高高的杂草给掩盖了。上面盖着木板,防止路人坠井。其中的一块木板上面有一个小孔,于是卡萝琳整个下午都往小孔里扔鹅卵石和橡树果,然后再一旁边等边数,直到她听见“扑通”的落水声从遥远的井底传来。


Coraline also explored for animals. She found a hedgehog, and a snakeskin (but no snake), and a rock that looked just like a frog, and a toad that looked just like a rock.There was also a haughty black cat, who would sit on walls and tree stumps and watch her, but would slip away if ever she went over to try to play with it.

卡萝琳也寻找了动物,她发现了一只刺猬,一条蛇皮(但是没有蛇),一块看起来像青蛙的石头和一只长得像石头的癞蛤蟆。还有一只傲慢的黑猫,会蹲在墙上或者树桩上观察她,但每当她试图过去和它玩耍的时候它就溜走了。


That was how she spent her first two weeks at the house - exploring the garden and the grounds.

这就是搬家后的头两个星期卡萝琳打发时间所做的——探索花园和空地。
