- An excerpt from the main article: Coraline (books)
When Coraline first met him in the book, she couldn't tell whether he was a boy or a girl, but he soon clarifies his gender. However, he too was not certain at first, as it was one of the many things in life he had forgotten. He was the only one, out of the three ghosties , who still remembered his mother despite the fact he remembered nothing else about his life. After being trapped inside the mirror, presumably the second child to be trapped in the other world, he is eventually freed by Coraline's help for finding his eyes and bringing it back in the real world. The Beldam put his real eyes in the lever ball of the mechanical praying mantis.
- In the movie, the end credits names this character as "The Ghost Boy" but, in the movie, Coraline also described the ghost boy as "Huck Finn junior."
- In the movie, the silhouettes of the three ghost children are seen on the wall of the dining room in the other world, perhaps signifying that they are what the Beldam "dines" on.
