The Wolves in the Walls Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

You might have left picture books in the dust once you left elementary school but The Wolves in the Walls is much more than just a children's story book. Take a look at Kidzworld's review of this magical tale.

Author: Neil Gaiman
Illustrator: Dave McKean

You may have left picture books behind you and are now tearing into wordy novels instead, but did you ever wonder whether you were missing out? There are some super-cool things your missing by shunning books with pictures. The Wolves in the Walls may not be the kind of book you're used to laying your eyes on, but that's exactly why you should check it out.


The Big Picture

The Wolves in the Walls is a story about Lucy and her family, and how they have wolves living in their walls - or at least that's what Lucy thinks. She hears scratching and nibbling in the walls and is convinced that the noises are coming from the wolves. But everyone that Lucy tells (her mom, dad and brother,) dismisses her concerns with more believable explanations. Little do they know, Lucy isn't tale isn't that far-fetched...


Pictures are Worth a Thousand Words

While this quirky tale is certainly one worth reading, it's The Wolves in the Walls artwork that really carries the book. Many of the illustrations look as though they have been sketched straight onto handmade paper, while others look as though they have been digitally altered. You could spend hours just taking in each intricate image.


Work of Art

Everyone should have a copy of The Wolves in the Walls. Young, old, boys and girls - The Wolves in the Walls is one of those classics that never get stale or dated. You could read it over and over without getting bored. Bring it to your next sleepover and read it by light of a flashlight cuz it's guaranteed to make a couple of your friends scream - in both fright and delight!
