    Am I the only one who thought this is a mishmash of H.P Lovecraft s The Rats in the Walls and the classic wolf riddled admonitory bedtime stories like Little Red Riding Hood and The Boy Who Cried Wolf The Wolves in the Walls, a collab work by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean, is yet another landmark tale that speaks directly to young readers while teaching a few lessons like open communication in the family.SPOILER ISH Basically the story revolves around Lucy aka the girl who cried wolf , w Am I the only one who thought this is a mishmash of H.P Lovecraft s The Rats in the Walls and the classic wolf riddled admonitory bedtime stories like Little Red Riding Hood and The Boy Who Cried Wolf The Wolves in the Walls, a collab work by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean, is yet another landmark tale that speaks directly to young readers while teaching a few lessons like open communication in the family.SPOILER ISH Basically the story revolves around Lucy aka the girl who cried wolf , who tells her family about the wolves lurking behind the wallpapers Her relatives however dismissed her fears as a product of her overactive imagination, and they are actually too engrossed into their own worlds to deal with Lucy her mother like any mother is a personification of domestic order, her oblivious father plays tuba, and her annoying brother plays video games Nobody believes her until the wolves do plunge out of the walls, invading the house and rendering the family homeless Lucy is the one who acts to glue the family together With a Coralinesque bravery and a simple strategy, she goes back to save her stranded toy, Pig Puppet, and in the process they are able to get their house back The characters at least in the part of the relatives are reminiscent of the people in The Day I Swapped my Dad with Two Goldfish The hardnosed heroine reminds me of Coraline, though there are numerous differences between them It s a pretty rad read all in all, though of course I ll appreciate itif I m a kid p With Lucy hearing those noises, I imagine it striking a chord with a lot of kids, since the very scene embody common fears of a child There are significant lessons embedded in the storyline as well, making the story weightier.I ve learned that this tale is conceived with help from the kids of the Gaiman and McKean Maddy Gaiman has a nightmare of wolves scratching the walls of their house Gaiman helped Maddy cope with this fear by storytelling, making strategies to escape from the wolves or something like that and these plotting became a part of the story Liam McKean does only a little contribution though, and this is the image of the Pig Puppet p I think it s quite adorable, how they pieced together things from real kids and create something that kids can appreciate

    My kids really liked it My eight year old son read it and thought it was good He thought the illustrations were cool because the people had spooky eyes I read it to my six year old son and my four year old daughter, and they liked it also My little girl actually made me read it to her twice Her only complaint was that the wolves were just regular old wolves and not werewolves Go figure I think some younger kids might find the story a little bit scary, so be careful if your kids spook ea My kids really liked it My eight year old son read it and thought it was good He thought the illustrations were cool because the people had spooky eyes I read it to my six year old son and my four year old daughter, and they liked it also My little girl actually made me read it to her twice Her only complaint was that the wolves were just regular old wolves and not werewolves Go figure I think some younger kids might find the story a little bit scary, so be careful if your kids spook easily

    Haha, ok the below review is one I wrote on .com in October of 2003 A review, I might add, that was found to be useful by 9 out of 9members Wow, I know, wowI recently read this book outloud to my cousin and he LOVED it The book is so intuitive and allows so much expression and voice intonation The characters are distinct individuals and I could instantly find their voice The art is simply amazing I ve been a fan of McKean for years I really don t think kids should be u Haha, ok the below review is one I wrote on .com in October of 2003 A review, I might add, that was found to be useful by 9 out of 9members Wow, I know, wowI recently read this book outloud to my cousin and he LOVED it The book is so intuitive and allows so much expression and voice intonation The characters are distinct individuals and I could instantly find their voice The art is simply amazing I ve been a fan of McKean for years I really don t think kids should be underestimated in their intelligence to appreciate the interesting art that mixes striking artwork and snippits of pictures of real life objects There isto the artwork than that, but that s another review.Some may think this book will frighten children, but it seemslike a healthy lesson in showing how silly such fear can be The book isabout defeating fear, as the family was able to get rid of the wolves so easily In the end the things that seem so scary monsters under the bed, etc are silly things that can be defeated with a simple look And it doesn t hurt that this book is written cleverly and with wonderful style.I could go on and on about this book, but I will just sum up by saying art is great, writing is great, story is fun and interesting and great for dramatic outloud readings, and the story is an excellent lesson in the silliness of childhood fears

    Cute and a little bit spooky kid s book by Neil Gaiman The illustrations are done by the same guy who did the Sandman graphic novels, so it s got that familiar vibe I guess you could call it a bit moody and atmospheric and artsy It s very Gaimanish Points for creating the word squossucks.

    I m sure this would ve been spookier if I had the images I listened to it , but nevertheless it had the same delightful bedtime story vibe to it.

    This is a great story about parents not listening to their daughter and said daughter saving their home It also has wolvesin the walls It comes with a CD of Gaiman reading the story aloud, which I haven t heard yetbut if the readings from The Ocean at the End of the Lane I heard him give last week are anything to go by, it should be excellent It is just the kind of story that should be read aloud, too, full of the rhythms and repeated refrains that fit with oral story telling.McKean s i This is a great story about parents not listening to their daughter and said daughter saving their home It also has wolvesin the walls It comes with a CD of Gaiman reading the story aloud, which I haven t heard yetbut if the readings from The Ocean at the End of the Lane I heard him give last week are anything to go by, it should be excellent It is just the kind of story that should be read aloud, too, full of the rhythms and repeated refrains that fit with oral story telling.McKean s illustrations are not readily described, which is a good thing because that means they are not cliched or boring They seem to be some kind of digital fusion of photographic and painted elements that create a sort of collage effect I ve not really seen before They are very evocative of mood and are just as excellent as the story, which makes a doubly excellent book, overall.Great stuff

    Dave McKean s illustrations are both haunting and hilarious at the same time The wolves are portrayed as drawings made by a child, as it is implied on the front cover of the book The wolves are also drawn in both a frightening and humorous way throughout the book A great example of an image where the wolves display both terror and humor is in the image of the wolves being shown in creepy shadows as they are watching television and are laughing their heads off Another advantage that this book Dave McKean s illustrations are both haunting and hilarious at the same time The wolves are portrayed as drawings made by a child, as it is implied on the front cover of the book The wolves are also drawn in both a frightening and humorous way throughout the book A great example of an image where the wolves display both terror and humor is in the image of the wolves being shown in creepy shadows as they are watching television and are laughing their heads off Another advantage that this book has is the heroine Lucy Lucy knew that trouble was about to begin and tries to warn her family of the danger of staying in the house, even though her family do not believe her at first Then, when the family is in danger of moving away, Lucy has the courage to save their house from the wolves, despite her family s objections, making her the heroine of the story The Wolves in the Walls have creative and scary illustrations by Dave McKean and have a strong heroine in Lucy, who saved her family from the wolves However, the story falls flat on the scare factor as the wolves are only perceived as the usual unwelcome guests in the family s home and the story is slow paced as it took time for the family to decide to rush back to their home If you want a story that is both action packed and scary, then read Neil Gaiman s other books such as, Coraline and The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish From my Epinions review
