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.
