There are sneaking,
creeping, crumpling
noises coming from
inside the walls.

Lucy is sure there are wolves living in the walls of their house -- and, as everybody says, if the wolves come out of the walls, it's all over. Her family doesn't believe her. Then one day, the wolves come out.

But it's not all over. Instead, Lucy's battle with the wolves is only just beginning.

Critical Praise

"The illustrations are amazing. And, like every good scary story, there’s an unexpected twist at the end." --Washington Post

"Gaiman does here for the older picture-book set what he did for middle-grade readers with last year’s Coraline." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Gaiman’s text rings with energetic confidence and an inviting tone. McKean expertly matches the tale’s funny-scary mood." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Gaiman has one creepy imagination. Hand this to a jaded third or fourth-grader and watch their eyes get big." --Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

"Gaiman has one creepy imagination, and his goosebump-inducing tale is given full visual throttle by McKean’s illustrations. Hand this to a jaded third or fourth-grader and watch their eyes get big—the better to see you with, my dear." --Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

"This is a picture book for the twenty-first century child: visually and emotionally sophisticated, accessible, and inspired." --ALA Booklist

"Children will delight in the "scary, creepy" tone and in the brave behavior displayed by the intrepid young heroine." --School Library Journal

"Gaiman is scary, funny, and never condescending. The Wolves in the Walls is Gaiman at his best. A wonderful reading experience for all ages." --Denver Rocky Mountain News
