Can one young werewolf stop an evil dragon killer from hosting the Ring of Horrors—a fight to the death between an angry dragon and an innocent giant? Find out in Werewolf versus Dragon.


The Safe Haven

The RSPCB (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts) is a sanctuary for the world’s most endangered beast. The Society was founded many years ago by the world’s first cryptozoologist, Professor Farraway. After the professor passed away, he left his entire fortune to the RSPCB. Unfortunately, his son, the evil Baron Marackai, is determined to get his revenge. He was wants to destroy the RSPCB and take the money that was rightfully his.


The Curious Werewolf

The society is home to Dr. Helen Fielding, the RSPCB’s vet, along with thousands of unusual beasts. You’ll find everything from giants, fairies and gargoyles to armourpods, razorjaws and electrodactyls! The RSPCB is also home to a young werewolf named Ulf, who looks like a human boy on every day but the full moon. Curious and adventurous, Ulf always jumps into the center of the action. That’s why, when a baby dragon is shot down from the sky, Ulf is determined to find the person responsible.


The Suspicious Inspector

When Inspector Black shows up at the RSPCB to conduct an investigation, Ulf senses that something is wrong. Inspector Black believes that the dragon killer shot the baby dragon in order to capture its mother. He suspects that the murderer plans to build a Ring of Horrors, an arena where spectators watch two endangered beasts battle to the death. But why would Inspector Black have such strong suspicions if he has no evidence? Obviously he knows more about the case than he lets on.


The Bottom Line

Werewolf versus Dragon is the first book in the exciting An Awfully Beastly Business series. Unlike most fantasy books, this series is chalked full of the most unusual beasts you can imagine. At only 183 pages (with very big font), this book is a quick read. But it’s climactic and action-packed. Werewolf versus Dragon is a perfect story for those leaving the Magic Tree House series behind and venturing into the wonderful world of tween reads.
