Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Oliver
Orphaned werewolf Ulf, seasoned member of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts, is off on a raucous adventure to save some trolls. In book three of the "An Awfully Beastly Business" series, we follow Ulf as he is joined by Orson the giant and Tiana the fairy on his quest to save the trolls from the evil Baron Marackai who is collecting them for a very special hunting party. Supervised by cyrptozoologist Dr. Fielding, who tends to gorgons, minotaurs, and giranhas (body of a giraffe and head of a piranha). Ulf and his companions zoom through many dangerous and slightly disgusting escapades on their way to saving the trolls. Fast-moving action and a wide variety of fantastical animals almost make up for the lack of character development and plot. The pen-and-ink illustrations are entertaining additions that contribute to the cartoon-like atmosphere of the story. Reluctant readers with a penchant for dragons and other mystical creatures may scoop this book right up but it has limited appeal. Reviewer: Sharon Oliver
