Overview

What's small and round and smells like knackwurst, and is very, very scary?
The Werewolf Club is about to find out! After a stop at the Local Yokel Diner to eat jitterbugs (you don't want to know), the young werewolves are off to Basketball Hall, the ancestral home of their teacher Mr. Talbot's uncle, Hugo Basketball. Generations of Basketballs have been cursed by their servants, the peculiar Barrymores, (it's so hard to get good help) not to mention by monstrous Hound of the Basketballs.
Who better to vanquish the frightful hound, Hugo figures, than a pack of werewolves? So with the moon full (and their belies full of knackwurst and sauerkraut) our intrepid heroes are once again risking their young lives to rid the world of evil.
But what about the haunted pastrami?

The Watson Elementary School Werewolf Club goes on a field trip to Basketball Hall, where Sir Hugo hopes they will solve the mystery of the hound which has plagued his family for generations.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-A disappointing story from two authors usually noted for their funny, creative writing. Mr. Talbot, a teacher and Werewolf Club adviser, takes the group on a field trip to Basketball Hall, the ancestral home of his uncle, Hugo Basketball. There they meet the Barrymores, the servants. Hugo hopes that the young werewolves can get rid of the monstrous Hound of the Basketballs that has plagued his family for generations. The "hound" turns out to be just a small, fat dog that the Barrymores have made gassy and frightening by feeding it knackwurst and sauerkraut-just to annoy the Basketballs. The main action here is eating knackwurst. There is little or no suspense or mystery. And there is no sports/basketball connection except for the name of the family. E. W. Hildick's and Patricia Reilly Giff's easy-to-read, humorous mysteries are much better choices.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
