Recommends it for: Children all across the globe!
This was my all time favorite book as a child. The entrancing idea of changing into a cat at night sparked my imagination. I love this book so much! I know it's not a classic but to me it's perfect.

Sin duda R. L. Stine sabe de plot twits, a pesar de que sus libros son para niños siempre me gustan y me sorprenden.

Even though I'm not a big cat fan. This was totally one of my favorite reads when I was younger. I think this was actually one of the very first R.L. Stine books that I ever read as a child. As I figured it was the least scary of his collection. And do to the fact that I have always had an affinity for the dual nature of were animals. And the characters that turn into them. So to say the least. This was by far a truly good read for me where Stine was concerned. I'm still leery of his other works ...more

i love all of r.l. stine's book, and this is no exception. wendy takes a charm, against the wishes of the seller. what the seller warns her about is coming true! she tries to take the charm off, but can't. at the last moment, she finds the seller and she removes it. but it's too late for wendy, the transformation is complete.

When I was a kid, I really liked cats.

I still really like cats. Cats are still my favorite, and it's great when I can come home from college and just hang out with a bunch of cats. But I really liked cats when I was little, and I'm pretty sure that's why this was one of my absolute favorite Ghosts of Fear Street book. It never overtook my love for Goosebumps, but it's definitely my favorite of this series.

One thing that I want to mention, now that I'm older and have vague memories of this boo

"The Ghosts of Fear Street" was my favorite series when I was younger. They were really all great books, but I read them a long long time ago, so I don't remember much about them.

Night of the Werecat is a quick, easy read that conforms perfectly to the chapter story rule of having a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter. It's amazing that Wendy, its protagonist, survived so many shocks to the system!

The writing here is of an appropriate level for the age group most likely to read the series and young cat lovers in particular will love the premise. Wendy is a little over the top when it comes to her cat obsession, but no more so than many primary school-aged children ar
This book is about Wendy going to a cat store and got a charm. She got it from the cat shop owner as a gift. Wendy got the necklace and one night at full moon she transformed. She became a werecat. She believed it was the necklace's curse and she threw it away. She didn't want to change into a cat again. One night it was full moon again and she transformed into a werecat again. She thought it was weird, but that night she met 3 other big werecats. Those 3 scared and finally she found out it was ...more

I loved it because I really like creepy stories. I liked the surprise at the end. I did expect her to have been a werecat all along.

This was my favorite Fear Street book when I was a kid. When I came across it at a used-book sale I knew I had to pick it up and reminisce.

I read this book when I was in 5th grade and I loved it, that's why I gave it 5 stars. But now at 21, I'd probably give it 2 stars. It's not meant for me, but I still enjoy it because it was part of my childhood.
