The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8 Matt was your average boy until a dangerous encounter awakens a wolf inside of him! This is a fun supernatural story from the internationally bestselling author of Inkheart. It will grip you from the very first page (why not read a taster right here by downloading the extract?) and being a slightly longer novel than the ones usually published by Barrington Stoke it offers readers a more substantial read and helps to begin to bridge the gap into enjoying longer stories.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 8+.

If you enjoy Cornelia Funke's Young Werewolf you'll probably also love Hagurosan by Darren Shan and Zombie! by Tommy Donbavand.

Synopsis

Young Werewolf by Cornelia Funke

Matt is returning home from the cinema when a yellow-eyed monster bites his hand and his whole world - and body - changes. Helped by his best friend Lisa and teacher Mrs Ruskin, they have just two days to find a cure before the curse takes hold forever!

About the Author

Cornelia Funke

Cornelia Funke is the New York Times bestselling author of the Inkheart trilogy, The Thief Lord and a whole host of popular children’s novels and picture books.

Born in 1958 in the German town of Dorsten, Cornelia initially worked as an illustrator but soon began writing her own stories, quickly establishing a reputation as one of Germany’s best-loved children’s authors.

Her international breakthrough came with the fantasy novel Dragon Rider, which spent 78 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Success continued with the publication of The Thief Lord, which immediately climbed to the #2 spot on the New York Times bestseller list and stayed there for 19 weeks, selling 1.5 million copies.

Inkheart the movie, starring Brendan Fraser, Helen Mirren and Paul Bettany, was released in 2008.

Reckless marked the start of Funke’s exciting new Mirrorworld series, and was followed by Fearless.

Cornelia Funke now lives in California and is working on several new books.
