The Wolves in the Walls by Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean

Lucy heard noises.
The noises were coming from inside the walls.
They were hustling noises and bustling noises.
They were crinkling noises and crackling noises.
They were sneaking, creeping, crumpling noises.

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.

A wonderfully strange and hilarious adventure for young readers from the acclaimed author and illustrator of the magical New York Times best-seller Coraline.

I read this to my child,since she asked for it many a night.It makes for a good story to tell before bedtime,and we may need a new book,from being read too much,since the spine is losing its grip on the pages.Lucy hears noises that her family misses entirely,blaming rats,and when the truth comes out she was right,there's no rubbing it in just how to take back what is rightfully theirs.I'd say this is a story about how a young girl inspires her family to fight to get their home back from jam-and-toast loving wolves.

After recently reading the Sandman series and given that I'd heard that this was coming out,I read it to my daughter,who has requested it daily.The story of Lucy,who has more insight to the safety of her home against her parents,who say she's reacting to an overactive imagination and hearing things;that she eventually rallies them to take action to remove the wolves altogether.I'd recommend this book to anyone who has felt the need for something different at night.

I bought this with my iPhobe Nook app. I wasn't able to listen to the story on my phone or my Nook. Feeling kinda ripped off.

It's a real delight to flip through & look at the pictures: They're fabulous! Unfortunately, the story is rather boring & vague... My 2 kids were a little puzzled... (...what???) Not the type of story you would read more than once. Too bad!
