The Wolves in the Walls

Oh, my gosh! This book is so scary it will make you scream until you laugh, and then you will cheer for Lucy who is smarter than her mother, father, brother and all of the wolves, in or outside of the walls.

Gaiman has done it again, made all of us grownups wish he were older and had written these books when we were kids.  Dave McKean’s in-your-face illustrations dominate the pages with an almost delicious scariness (that’s jam, not blood) that today’s children will recognize as funny and not at all threatening, something that the parent or grandparent reading the book out loud will take a bit longer to understand.

Best of all is Gaiman’s soft spot for little girls who are pretty darned swift at figuring things out way before the rest of the world.
