Every werewolf dreams of his first Transwolfation. When Freddy's ceremony reveals he's a werepoodle, he flees home in disgrace, then is taken to Coldfax Fort. It's not a pleasant place for a poodle, but it is the right place to solve a mystery, curly-haired canine or not. The story, with humorous pen-and-ink chapter-opener illustrations, provides apt silliness for animal lovers. Copyright 2010 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.

Gr 3–6—Freddy Lupin has been waiting all his life for his first transformation into a wolf. Raised in a castle as a member of a proud and ancient werewolf pack, he has had a difficult time since his father's mysterious death. Prone to accidents and mischief-making, he often angers his uncle, Sir Hotspur, and spars with his young cousins, Harriet and Chariot. But when the auspicious night of "transwolftation" finally arrives, Freddy finds himself changed into, not a mighty wolf, but a little black poodle. As if this is not enough humiliation, his evil cousins capture him and have him dyed pink. After escaping the groomer, Freddy finally unites with some friendly canines, only to find himself in a horrible pound from which no dog has ever escaped. There, he learns the truth about his father's death and plots his return to the castle to save his pack from a deadly werewolf hunter. Character development is certainly not the point here, and readers never find out for certain why Freddy turns into a poodle, but the fast-paced action and numerous fart jokes will lure young reluctant readers.—Hayden Bass, Seattle Public Library, WA
