Lucy hears noises coming from inside the walls of her big, old house. Her family has something to say about them, but no one believes it's wolves, because then it would be over. Everyone knows that, according to her parents and brother. Maybe rats or bats, but definitely not wolves. Lucy, however, is certain that's exactly what's causing the ruckus, and she's scared by the idea of "it" being over. What could that mean? What happens whenwolves come out of the walls?
Margo was a little nervous about reading The Wolves in the Walls by Neil Gaiman when we pulled it off the shelf, but she put on her brave face and snuggled up to listen. This is a fun book to read out loud, and the illustrations are interesting and unique. They set a spooky tone and add a quirky flavor to the story. We live in the Begonia House, which is also big and old, and it's always creeping with strange sounds, so it was easy for Margo to relate with Lucy about no one believing what she knew to be true. After we finished the book, Margo told me she wasn't the least bit surprised when it turned out the pig-puppet had the most sense. :)
Has anyone else read The Wolves in the Walls? We'd love to hear your thoughts.
