Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Daniel Pinkwater is author of more than 80 books for children and youth. Mr. Pinkwater is also a commentator/host for Chinway Theater, a radio program that can be heard on NPR stations. He and his illustrator wife, Jill, love dogs and it is again evident in this far-from-real, humorous story, number 3 in the "Werewolf Club" series. Members Ralf Alfa, Billy Furball, Lucy Fang and Norman Gnormal are attending their regular club meeting at the home of their sponsor, Mr. Watson. He is having a backyard barbecue and planning to serve meat, but the kids are happy to settle for veggie burgers. They are tired of meat products, having just saved the earth from evil space aliens that took the form of giant meatballs, which the kids had to eat. Billy Furball, the unsanitary member, claims there is a new student in their school who is a vampire bat. Mr. Watson feels this is impossible. Henry Count Dorkula is the new kid's name, and he wants to become a member of the club. The kids don't like the idea of a bat attending their canine meetings. Henry "appears" and brags about his irresistible bat status. Billy suddenly starts to call Henry his "Master" and readily accepts the position of being his slave. The kids don't care for this and soon realize many strange things have been happening in the town. An annual rotten tomato throwing contest festival is halted because the tomatoes could not be found. The squash from a prize-winning garden is missing, and there is a serious fruit shortage. The Werewolf Club needs to logically solve the mystery. They know somehow the new kid, Henry, is a part of this, but who else is involved? This is a clever story that children will enjoy reading and teachers willchuckle as they read aloud to their students. 2001, Aladdin Paperback/Simon & Schuster, $3.99. Ages 8 to 10.

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

The members of the Watson Elementary School Werewolf Club were sitting around the outdoor fireplace in Mr. Talbot's backyard, barbecuing veggie burgers. Mr. Talbot is our faculty sponsor. It may seem strange for a bunch of werewolves to be eating veggie burgers, but we had sort of lost our taste for the real thing. Not long before, we had eaten some really huge meatballs when we saved Earth from evil space aliens. These space aliens had taken the form of meatballs, and we had no choice but to eat them. When I say huge, I mean as big as a person.

Mr. Talbot's mother appeared with a large bowl. "Who would like some nice chicken necks?" she asked.

"Ack!" said Lucy Fang, the only female member of the Werewolf Club.

"Ick!" said Ralf Alfa, the handsome and athletic natural leader of the Werewolf Club.

"Ook!" said I, Norman Gnormal, the newest member of the Werewolf Club.

"Fried or stewed?" asked Billy Furball, the most unsanitary member of the Werewolf Club.

"By the way," Billy Furball said. "Did you all know we have a vampire in our school?"
