From start to finish, I thought this children's book was so much fun. Byron is the main character and he's a six year old boy / werewolf. But there's a catch. He's afraid to howl. On his journey (as he awaits the full moon) he gets advice from other characters, and lo behold, he learns not to be afraid of being himself and finally howls. I thought the message behind this book, about not worrying what other people think of you and being unafraid to be yourself is a wonderful message for kids and was well executed. I did enjoy the illustrations and would likely pick up another one of Caldric's children's books for my kids who really enjoyed the story. Both my 4 yr old and 6 yr old liked it and wanted to read it again.
Six-year-old Byron Woodward is a werewolf who can’t howl. Determined not to embarrass himself after being chosen to lead a full-moon ceremony, he embarks on a mission to learn how to howl. He learns a lot about howling during his journey, but more importantly, he learns a valuable lesson about believing in himself.

Caldric's Website / Twitter / Goodreads / Facebook
Caldric Blackwell realized he loved reading when he read about a bunch of people (with single-syllable names) and their pets (also with single-syllable names) in kindergarten.
Exposure to a host of great authors while studying at the University of California, Santa Barbara inspired him to begin writing fiction. Although he began writing short stories for adults, he eventually migrated to writing children's books. His debut work is an early chapter book titled The Enchanted River Race. His next release is a picture book, The Boy Who Couldn't Cry Wolf.
Outside of writing, Caldric enjoys hiking, gardening, and playing a variety of string instruments. Caldric currently resides in California.
