ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.

Moongobble has been assigned his second task to prove he should be a magician: he must get a bottle of tears from the dreaded Weeping Werewolf who lives alone in the forest. Fortunately, Edward, Urk the toad, the Rusty Knight, and Fireball the Dragon are willing to help. When they find the Weeping Werewolf, everyone is in for a big surprise!

This charming little series of short children’s novels, beautifully narrated and enhanced with cute sound effects by

My son loves these books. Full of adventure and magic. Silly magic at times. We read these together. :-)

Basic fantasy plot, but for younger readers who are just starting to read on their own. It's a good series for kids who like genre stories.

Once again, job well done Mr. Coville. I'm really enjoying these books so far! My class loves them too! Win win!
Second in the series. I liked this one even better than the first story. Cute, non-scary story suitable for young children.

For Parents: If you object to wizards you won't like these.
My son just loves these books!!! What a nice break from Star Wars :)

I chose this book as one of my favorites because it allows you to go into a whole new world when you are reading and takes you on an adventure.
This book is all about the adventures of Edward and Moongobble in attempt to help Moongobble become a part of the Society of Magicians. Within my classroom I would use this book as an independent reading book. This book will allow students to go into a world of their own while reading this book and just imagine wha
I remember enjoying books by this author when I was a child (My Teacher is an Alien, etc.) I picked this one up at the library thinking it might be a good chapter book to read aloud to my preschooler. The book is quite short and is illustrated throughout.

The story begins in medias res with a bullying episode wherein the main character is harassed for his fatherlessness. Diving immediately into themes of conflict tends to make my son apprehensive. He needs a little time to get to know the charac
Moongooble is a Magician without the approval to practice in his village. Because he failed the test, he must now complete three tasks. In this the second book, Moongooble with his young friend, Edward, must get tears from the weeping werewolf. They travel to the Forest of Night and ignoring all warnings to avoid the forest, search for the weeping werewolf. They get their jar of tears and then ask why the werewolf is so sad. He was turned into a werewolf by a mean witch because he didnt' have an ...more

My son loves Xbox, not reading. Until he found this book. This is the first book that he willingly picked up on his own each day, waiting to see what was going to happen next. He was delighted to find out that it was part of a series and as soon as he finished this volume, backtracked to find the first of the series and is looking forward to the latter books.

An excellent story of friendship and adventure, the word usage is excellent for reading on his own, with enough repetition of harder word

My son has started reading this series. I have not read them myself but based on his reaction they must be pretty entertaining. I frequently hear him laughing while he is reading and then he will come up to me and tell me, in his 6 year old way (i.e. long, rambling and makes little sense to me), all about what has happened.
Frankly, I am just happy that he is branching out and reading some chapter books other than the Magic Tree House books. Those are good too but some variety now and then is go

I really like this series -- it is perfect for first- or second-graders who are just starting to get their feet wet with short chapter books, it works well as a read-aloud, too. We're going with the read-aloud route, and even my fourth-grader is enjoying these. They are quick (it only takes us a couple of nights to make it through one of these slim volumes) and funny.

I enjoyed the storyline of this book, even moreso than the first one -- there are a few happy twists and a good moral about kindne
The series Moongobble and Me by Bruce Coville is a great series for children who are starting to read chapter books. They are under 100 pages with delightful illustrations by Katherine Coville. The second in the series,The Weeping Werewolf, is about a boy named Edward who accompanies local magician, Moongobble, on a quest to obtain the tears of the werewolf who lives in the Forest of the Night. Humor, suspense and surprise await Edward on this trip! For ages 6-10.

Another heart-warming, adventurous, and well-rounded tale from Coville. I'm constantly impressed by his ability to write exceptionally well for many different age groups.

Oh, and in the edition I have (illustrated by his wife, Katherine Coville) Moongooble looks exactly like a white-haired version of Brian Froud (fantasy author, illustrator, and conceptual artist). Go ahead--put "Brian Froud" into Google images. I'll wait. ;-) Adorable!

The second book in the Moongobble and Me books. Moongobble is out to do his second task to be accepted into the magical society. He needs to collect tears from the Weeping Werewolf. They travel into the forest and confront the werewolf. It has a great suprise twist at the end. Another great book for children.

I read this aloud to the kids on a car trip 6 months ago and the 5(boy) and 7(girl) year old liked it. I wish I'd known it was the second in the series. I like to start at the beginning. The characters are fairly simple but not quite ordinary.
Edward Creter
Edward, Moongobble the Wizard and their talking animal friends are back and on a new quest, this time to locate and collect the tears of a very weepy werewolf. Why is the wolfie so SAD? Maybe he doesn't like onions? Boo HooooooooOOO!

Moongobble & Edward took me on another adventure that was fun, exciting, and had a VERY happy ending:)

Another masterpeice of Bruce!
Fun, short read. I really like Bruce Coville's books. I haven't read any of the alien series yet but I'm sure they will be fun reads as well.
Short chapter book. Sequel to Dragon of Doom. Engaging. Fairy-tale like. Magician, dragon, Knight, little boy. [Junior Library Guild Selection]
This was another book that I volunteered to transcribe to be converted into Braille.

Cute story. Glad I'm able to continue with the series!
