Summary
Are ferocious, shapeshifting werewolves real, or just a myth? You decide with this new book in the nonfiction series, Behind the Legend!

Behind the Legend looks at creatures and monsters throughout history and analyzes them through a scientific, myth-busting lens, debating whether or not the sightings and evidence provided are adequate proof of their existence. In Werewolves , readers learn about all the sightings and "proof" of them, from stories in history of wolves that terrorized towns, such as the Beast of GĂ©vaudan, as well as people (even children!) who were believed to transform into wolves, and other evidence. It also discusses additional history about the monster, such as how werewolves became major figures in popular culture, more recent supposed sightings, and theories on werewolf transformations. Complete with engaging anecdotes, interesting sidebars, and fantastic illustrations, kids won't want to put this book down!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "How and when did such supernatural creatures as werewolves and zombies begin to terrify us? These high-interest titles in the Behind the Legend series trace the origin of the monsters from ancient times to their modern-day depictions in pop culture. In the process, they weave folklore, historical accounts, and theories that may explain the seemingly unbelievable. Werewolves starts with ancient tales of shape-shifters and continues with gruesome werewolf stories from the Middle Ages and sightings of a hairy beast in the Midwest in the late twentieth century. As it explains werewolf traits that frighten us and how wolves continue to be vilified in fairy tales, the book also relates possible explanations for lycanthropy, including mental illness and fungus-infested grain. Each volume features cartoon artwork (though respectful when needed) from different illustrators. The effective blend of history and creepiness makes these guides a spirited pick for avid and reluctant readers alike.--Leeper, Angela Copyright 2018 Booklist"
