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...

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

We love Lovereading4kids because it promotes reading choices, new authors and a sense of community for children of all ages!

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
