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.
Many children may find this book truly nightmarish, despite its essential zaniness (wolves feasting on toast and jam) and its reassuring joke of an ending. Elizabeth Ward
