Overview


An irresistible Halloween tale by one of Scholastic Press' most gifted storytellers.

Michael McKenzie and his sister Hazel are awakened a few nights before Halloween by growling and howling. The next morning, they find their front yard in shambles, and a small bundle cowering on their doorstep. It's a puppy! A cute, darling little mutt they decide to call Angel. They soon learn, however, that Angel is no ordinary puppy, especially when the moon is full..... Hoffman and her teenage son's delightful tale of the challenges of owning a were-puppy is charmingly illustrated by acclaimed artist Yumi Heo.

Editorial Reviews

"One September, when the moon was full, in a town not far from here, where every day was sunny and every night was clear, a shadowy figure crept into the McKenzie's yard." Beloved author Alice Hoffman, her son Wolfe, and artist Yumi Heo have created a beguiling tale about an abandoned pup and the magic of a full moon.
