The Wolves in the WallsThe Wolves in the Walls by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For a YA picturebook horror that feels rather cute and not particularly scary, on the surface, this is actually on par with Coraline for the disconcerting, deep under-the-surface stuff.

But then, what are we supposed to think? It IS Gaiman.

This is a re-read for me but that's not a problem. I had to give my girl a little spooktober fun. She laughed, was actually frightened a little, and came out of it feeling refreshed.

But I, as an adult, felt mightily disturbed. Mostly because I saw it as an allegory, or worse, purely psychological. *Shiver*

Well, if those wolves come out of the walls, it *IS* all over.
