Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This beginning chapter book is creative and filled with zany humor. Even the chapter numbers are funny-beginning with "Minus Three." Chapter one is a mere 16 words long and none of the 38 chapters has more than two pages of text. Norman Gnormal is not your average fourth grader. He was raised as a dog because (he thinks) his parents really wanted a dog instead of a boy. Due to his strange behavior (growling, drooling, threatening to bite other students), the school principal signs him up for the new Werewolf Club started by one of the teachers. It turns out that the odd instructor is stuck between being a man and a werewolf because of a supposed curse from his half-brother. Norman and his three real werewolf schoolmates locate the half-brother and get the magic pretzel that can allegedly reverse the curse. Although this book is not quite as engaging as Pinkwater's slightly longer works, it may lead readers to them and is certainly howling good fun.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
