All Hallow's Read!

The Wolves in the Walls. Neil Gaiman. Dave McKean. Book Review: Lucy can hear wolves in the walls. The rest of her family doesn't believe her, but everyone knows: when the wolves come out of the walls, it's all over. [Image: people and wolves, listening to each other through a wall] A delightfully eerie tale, with wonderful, creepy pictures by Dave McKean.

Spookiness: 4/5 ghosts

Spooky elements: Wolves! In the walls! (and the images by Dave McKean are extremely spooky.)

Good for: Kids, and Neil Gaiman and/or Dave McKean fans of all ages. I was planning on reviewing The Dangerous Alphabet this year, as it's newer, but I like this older gem so much!
