THIS TERRIFIED ME. I was an innocent 8 year old...what was I thinking?

A weak beginning to the series - which is surprising, since it’s written by Mr. Packard and werewolves seem to be a perfect subject for nightmares.

It’s cute. Nothing too intense. Nothing long story wise. I enjoyed it though. :)

I read this with my girlfriend for Halloween. It’s a lot of fun.

Sorry, but no. This book was pretty abysmal, and that's coming from someone who likes both this series and werewolves in general. You can see every plot twist coming a mile away, every situation is embarrassingly cliche, and the titular werewolf is not scary at all. I remember being pretty underwhelmed by this book as a kid, and time has not helped. There is really no good reason to waste your time reading this derivative book. Somehow the first book in the series is the worst of all. Go figure. ...more

This is a very good, well-built book that was the first in Edward Packard's attempt to branch off into a new series designed for older kids to read (the Choose Your Own Nightmare books). Though the idea of werewolves in stories is decidedly not a new concept, Edward Packard used it well in these pages, taking the plot into oftentimes unexpected directions and maintaining a suspenseful atmosphere throughout. ...more

the adventures that I went through when I was bored I just read these books over and over again you would never get to the end of the story.

I think the book didn't have alot of details, descriptions, events, or good storyline. Pretty childish. I'd recommend to anyone 2nd Grade or under :/ ...more
