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.

You could read it over and over without getting bored.
