The Lovereading comment:
Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 8+. An exciting blend of fact and fiction, this story tells of the terror that struck France in the 1760s when a huge and ferocious creature attacked and killed more than 100 children and women working out in the fields. The fear was so pervasive that anyone who looked even a little bit different was tracked down and killed. Luc Pascal is one such and in telling his story he captures the terror and tension of the time.

SynopsisNight of the Werewolf by John Townsend
France, the 1760s. The villagers cower in fear of a terrifying beast that stalks their livestock and attacks their children. Rumours are rife. Is the beast a wolf or is it something far more horrific - a werewolf? And can anyone kill it and stop the attacks? Fascinating true story of superstition and terror. Publisher Barrington Stoke specialise in books for reluctant, struggling and dyslexic readers.
