100% Wolf

$6.99
More Info
You'd be upset too if you turned into a poodle instead of a wolf.

Freddy Lupin is gearing up for the most exciting night of his life. It's the evening of his one-hundred-and-twenty-first month (that's ten years and one month to a human), and he's about to undergo his very first transwolftation. But when Freddy is introduced to the much-honored Hidden Moonlight Gathering of Werefolk, the rite of passage quickly morphs into an episode of humiliation. Because Freddy doesn't turn into a wolf. He turns into a poodle.

A funny and fast-paced adventure ensues, in which Freddy is thrown out of his pack, uncovers the truth about his legendary father's mysterious death, and discovers that a werewolf hunter is planning to destroy all of his family and friends--and Freddy might be the only one who can stop him. He might be small, pink, and groomed, but luckily, Freddy Lupin is one hundred percent wolf.

To children, the world can seem huge, filled with exciting places to visit and new things to experience. But how can they start uncovering the many treasures that await them? This fun and informative guidebook--the first in a new series--invites kids to embark on an exhilarating scavenger hunt that opens their eyes to things they've never imagined before. And there's no need to go far or plan a big, expensive vacation to see this great stuff. In fact, some of the places may be quite close to home. They can take a peek at what actually goes on at their parents' office, experience another culture's cuisine at an ethnic restaurant, immerse themselves in the beauty of nature at a wildlife preserve, or get the inside scoop on what really happens backstage at the theater...or even in the teacher's lounge! And the ideas are just general enough to provide a gentle push in the right direction, while allowing young dreamers to use their imagination and fill in the specifics.
In addition to tons of fun facts, lists of little-known sites, and more than 250 color photos, there's a bonus fold-out map of North America and stickers, so youngsters can mark where they've been.

More Info

New York Times-bestselling team Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton invite readers to come hang out with them in their 104-Story Treehouse--the eighth book in the illustrated chapter book series filled with Andy and Terry's signature slapstick humor!

Andy and Terry live in a 104-story treehouse. (It used to be a 91-story treehouse, but they decided it was still missing a few things.) It has a never-ending staircase, a burp bank, a deep-thoughts thinking room, Mount Everest, a mighty fortress reinforced with extra-strong fortress reinforcer, and a money-making machine (that also makes honey!).

When Andy has a toothache that hurts so bad he can't write any jokes for their new book, Terry knows just what to do: buy a Joke Writer 2000(TM) to write the jokes for them! All they need first is some money from their money-making machine and then it's off to the store. It's a foolproof plan--a Terry-proof one, even!

What could go wrong?

Praise for Andy Griffiths and the Treehouse series:

Anarchic absurdity at its best. . . . Denton's manic cartooning captures every twist and turn in hilarious detail. --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on The 13-Story Treehouse

Will appeal to fans of Jeff Kinney and Dav Pilkey. . . . The wonderfully random slapstick humor is tailor-made for reluctant readers. . . . A treat for all. --Booklist on The 13-Story Treehouse

Once upon a time, in a gloomy castle on a lonely hill, where there were thirteen clocks that wouldn t go, there lived a cold, aggressive Duke, and his niece, the Princess Saralinda. She was warm in every wind and weather, but he was always cold. His hands were as cold as his smile and almost as cold as his heart. He wore gloves when he was asleep, and he wore gloves when he was awake, which made it difficult for him to pick up pins or coins or the kernels of nuts, or to tear the wings from nightingales.
So begins James Thurber's sublimely revamped fairy tale, The 13 Clocks, in which a wicked Duke who imagines he has killed time, and the Duke s beautiful niece, for whom time seems to have run out, both meet their match, courtesy of an enterprising and very handsome prince in disguise. Readers young and old will take pleasure in this tale of love forestalled but ultimately fulfilled, admiring its upstanding hero ( who yearned to find in a far land the maiden of his dreams, singing as he went and possibly slaying a dragon here and there ) and unapologetic villain ( We all have flaws, the Duke said. Mine is being wicked ), while wondering at the enigmatic Golux, the mysterious stranger whose unpredictable interventions speed the story to its necessarily happy end."
