Upon completing this third installment in the series, it is becoming apparent that each book has a formulaic plot structure to it.

One of the beasts in injured and brought to the RSPCB where Dr. Fielding, Ulf and Orson care for it. Marackai manages to trick, and capture, Dr. Fielding and Orson and U...more
"This book is recommended to kids who like adventures and monsters (cryptids). It took me three days to finish and I cannot wait to read the others in the series.

If you want to read a book about FANTASY, ACTION and DRAMA then you really should consider reading this book.
Okay, the main character is named Ulf and he is a (as you can hear in the name) a werewolf. Ulf lives in a park for fantasy animals like werewolves, unicorns, fairies, giants and dragons. One day a bat comes with a note which says HELP. The next day he goes to a big mountain and there aren’t passing much time before he is on the case of a illegal troll hunt. The best thing about this bo...more
Wasn't nearly as good as the first two Beastly Business books, and I'm not sure why. Still, Ulf was cute as always and the pictures were adorable. Always loved the artwork.
