A Werewolf Named Oliver James

(3) K-3 As dusk descends, young Oliver and his fellow school-band members wait for their afterschool bus--hold on, why did everybody run away? The zippily cartooned pictures, in lusciously Halloweeny oranges and deep purples, explain: Oliver has become a werewolf. The boy's bewilderment turns to delight after he glimpses his lupine reflection--and the full moon--in a puddle. An additional surprise awaits at home.
