The Wolves in the Walls

Posted 2005-11-07 @ 10:27:24 In articles > reviews

I know most of our readers will have absolutely no intention of browsing the kiddie’s picture book shelves at their closest Exclusive Books; you would, however, be surprised at the macabre and depraved things children find amusing. I would think Roald Dahl would be the point and case.

However, there’s a new nightmare in town and, arbly enough, kids love him. Gaiman’s children’s novel ’Coraline’ has been a runaway hit, paving the way for his -and Mckean’s- two picture books ’The Wolves in the Walls’ and ’ ’The Day I Swopped My Dad for a Goldfish.’

’The Wolves in the Walls’ has -in adult terms- quite a horrific story line, yet as Dahl once put it, kids love horror and gruesomeness as long as it’s happening to the right character. I will not give away any of the content as the fun of devouring it unawares is what gives it its unmistakable Gaiman charm.
