the wolves are coming

August 5th cannot come soon enough.

witw_cover.jpgThat is the day that Wolves in the Wall by Neil Gaiman (illustrated by the artistic genius Dave McKean) will be released.

It's being marketed - as far as I can see - as a graphic novel for children. As with Coraline, which was marketed as a children's book also, there seems to be plenty of Gaiman's darkness to go around for adults as well.

I do like the fact that it's being called a graphic novel. Perhaps this will open the door for parents and teachers alike to embrace the genre of graphic novels as real literature.

There is nothing more satisfying than thanNeil Gaiman, and Dave McKean together.

Speaking of reading, I just finished Roger Simon's Director's Cut, which I will review tomorrow (preview: it was GOOD) and I'm currently reading The Deptford Trilogy by Robertson Davies (Thank you to Jacki for sending the book to me) and Shiloh, which I'm reading for a mother/son book group at the library which starts tomorrow night and we probably won't be going because I cannot get DJ interested in the book. I'm sure I'll have no problem getting him to read Wolves in the Wall, however.
