The Lovereading4Kids comment

A howlingly hairy summer adventure - picture a boy, his eccentric grandparents and a pet dog that is a kind of special werewolf in reverse, all living on the edge of a strange and eerie wood. Now imagine that this strange dog is being hunted by the scientific institute from where it escaped. Fast and funny, it’s sure to wow readers of 8 or 9+ and with its fantastic lenticular cover not much is left to the imagination as you see Woody the dog change from wolf to boy. Brilliant.

A message from the publisher, Barry Cunningham:

Bite me! No, not really! But that’s what you might think your doggy best friend would do if he turned rather strange at full moon. Dark, thrilling and funny, this is the book you’ve been dying to read.

Synopsis

Wolven by Di Toft

Wolven is a fantasy firmly rooted in the mysterious present. A boy and his eccentric grandparents live near a strange wood - apparently cursed. He longs for a dog - but the dirty ungainly farm creature finally found by his grandfather hardly fits his image of the perfect pet. And it howls in the night. But it's only when his dog starts to grow human ears that he realises that something is seriously wrong. The truth is stranger than his wildest dreams...
