Howl: Everything the Modern Werewolf Needs to Know by Serena Valentino

Yet another werewolf guide book is coming soon to store shelves. Howl: Everything the Modern Werewolf Needs to Know by Serena Valentino will be released September 25, 2012. Even though it’s not a serious guide on werewolves and even though I already have a bookshelf full of werewolf non-fiction, I am oddly excited about the release of this book. One, it looks awesome, every page is a stunning work of art, and two, it seems like a fun book. Check out the details below:

“Written for the lycanthropic teen (or the aspiring werewolf hunter), this quirky, fast-paced, visually compelling guide has it all—fashion, make-up, movies, dating, dealing with the inevitable full-moon parties, and more. Fast-paced, funny, colorful, and good for the whole pack.”
