Review:
On his tenth birthday, plus one month, Freddy Lupin, son of legendary Flasheart Lupin, will undergo his first transformation into a werewolf. At the full moon, all the other werefolk will gather at the castle where Freddy has lived with his horrible uncle, Lord Hotspur, and cousins since his father's untimely and mysterious death.

On this ceremonial occasion, Freddy feels his change beginning and initiates his first howl. When his howl comes out as a "yip," Freddie's transformation is complete. But instead of becoming a wolf, he has turned into a poodle. Original, ludicrous and genuinely funny.
