Gaiman Thinks Walls Is Outsider

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Here - from his Journal - is what Neil Gaiman thinks of Dave McKean's chances of winning the Greenaway medal:

I just read the Greenaway shortlist and while all the other books get described in glowing, heartwarming and entirely positive terms, The Wolves in the Walls seems to have troubled the person writing the descriptions no end. It is, we learn, "a scary, strange but highly imaginative picture book .... highly unsettling". Oh well. I don't know what the UK bookies odds on the Greenaway are (although I found the odds on the Orange with no problems), but I suspect that Dave will not be the odds-on favourite.

Actually, Neil, I shouldn't set too great store by those resumes. They're not written by the judges.
