This picture book takes my breath away.  The story line is very dark.  It takes place in a menacing future world.  A young boy lives alone in a small room in a decaying city, trying to avoid the "woolvs."  The grim illustrations are anything but pretty, but they are thought provoking and in their own way, quite beautiful.  My first reaction was this is Caldecott material, but the creators, Margaret Wild and Anne Spudvilas, are Austrailian.  The text is full of misspellings which highlights the fact that the boy is completely alone.

I highly reccomend it.
