About The Wolves in the Walls by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean:

When Lucy hears noises from behind the wall she tries to warn her parents that there are wolves banging about. But her parents don’t listen. When the wolves finally take over the house and Lucy and her family are evicted to live in the garden, her parents realise perhaps they should have listened. What will Lucy do next?
