My Friend's A Werewolf

My Friend's A Werewolf


Now I know for certain Simon is a werewolf!

Kelly always thought werewolves only existed in stories and late-night films. Until Simon moves in next door. Kelly and Simon become instant friends, but Kelly just can't help noticing that there's something very odd about her new friend. For one thing, he wears black gloves all the time - even at school. And could that be hair starting to sprout on his face? Last, but definitely not least, there's the howling at night . . .

Aren't werewolves . . . dangerous?


  • Has the tension, the fear of the unknown plus a gradual build-up to a climax typical of the genre, yet that climax is not only griping but both unexpected and convincing . . . A really compelling tale
