I spend a ridiculous amount of time scanning books on Amazon, like way WAY too much time (it’s addictive!) and while doing the daily scan I caught sight of a book cover that made my inner child go “PRETTY! I WANTS IT!” So, of course I clicked on the book link. Turns out this book with the awesome cartoon cover is actually a children’s werewolf series – WIN! The series is called An Awfully Beast Business and it’s written collaboratively by David Sinden, Matthew Morgan and Guy Macdonald. The series follows the adventures a half werewolf named Ulf. There are currently seven books in this series, the first of which being Werewolf versus Dragon. Check out the book details for Werewolf versus Dragon below!
“The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts (RSPCB) operates a rescue center for werewolves, dragons, fairies, giants, sea monsters, and other fantastical creatures. The RSPCB has stopped crimes against beasts, but there are still some people out there who will do anything to get their hands on one of these mythic animals . . . even if that means crossing the members of the RSPCB. In the first book, Werewolf versus Dragon, a dragon’s mangled body arrives at the RSPCB, and the Society knows that they’ve got a real monster on their hands. Ulf, a werewolf-boy, and his friends must stop the most evil beast hunter before it’s too late.”
Sounds like an awesome children series, made more awesome by the fact that the main character is a werewolf. I may have to pick this one up, I love me some magical kid books full of all sorts of magical beasties.
Also, the first book, Werewolf versus Dragon, has three covers (odd). The one that caught my eye is the one pictured above. The other two are just as great and I didn’t want to leave them out, so have a gander below.
What do you guys think? Will you check this series out? Or maybe give it as a gift to a younger werewolf lover?
