Synopsis (from Goodreads)
Hair today...gone tomorrow?? Okay. It happened to Splat. And to his sister, Angie. How many kids could get "monsterized" in one neighborhood? Well, at least one more apparently. It started with a walk in the woods -- and ended up with an overly fuzzy kid who finds himself howling at the moon.
There is a way for Norman to get back to his old self. But there are two problems: He kind of likes being a wolf; and there's only a few more days until the next full moon...

What is The Wavering Werewolf about?
It's a boy named Norman. It starts when he's on a field trip in the woods. He got distracted and went on another path. He was separated from the rest of the class and got lost. He stumbled up a big, weird wolf and he got nibbled on his nose. Over time, he started to develop weird characteristics and eventually turned into a half-werewolf. He told his friend that he's a werewolf and they started researching about being a werewolf and for a cure.

But there's this guy who hunts strange creatures. His name is Teridakian and he wanted to catch Norman because he found out he is a werewolf. He wanted Norman for his circus.

What is your favorite thing about Norman?
My favorite thing about Norman is that he's really nerdy and smart. I really liked his character.

Who was your favorite character?
Norman's mom. She's not a main character and she's not really in the book that much but she's a cool mom. She's nice and she goes with the flow. She's a caterer so she always have dinner ready and she makes food for Norman and his friends. She made Indian curry! She didn't know what was going on with Norman though.

You don't read a lot of books for fun. What made you read The Wavering Werewolf?
It looked really interesting from the cover. And it seemed like a really easy book to read in a few days. I really liked that there were pictures--it gave me an idea about what Norman really looks like and the things happening in the book. When I started reading there wasn't a lot of action in the beginning but later on in the book, after Norman got bitten by the wolf, things got really interesting. I wanted to keep reading it because I really wanted to know what happens next. It was also easy to read.

Would you recommend this book to your friends?
Yes. Because it's one of those page-turners book. It's really quick to read too. It's a book everyone should read!

Because I think both boys and girls would like it. I'm a girl and I read it and really liked it. My friend Tiana would like it too... she likes books about dogs and werewolves are in the dog family.

If you could sum up The Wavering Werewolf in three words, what would they be?
Weird, cool, fun

Final Verdict: Great for reluctant readers

**Can be read as a standalone
