“Fast, funny, frightening—and filled with shocks and surprises. These books are my kind of fun. I want to live on Monsterstreet!” —R.L. Stine, author of the Goosebumps series

The Monsterstreet series kicks off with this chilling tale about a boy who discovers his father was killed by a legendary werewolf.

Max Bloodnight can’t decide what’s more terrifying about his weekend in Wolf County—the fact that he has to stay with grandparents he’s never met before or being stuck on a farm without cell service. If only that was all he had to fear.

Determined to solve the mystery of his father’s death, which occurred years before at the claws of a legendary werewolf, Max must hunt to uncover the truth before the full moon rises . . . and the werewolf strikes again.

Don't miss any of the books in the thrilling Monsterstreet series!

Max’s dad died when he was young so he doesn’t remember much about him. He also never sees his dad’s side of the family. That’s why he’s surprised when his mom tells him he’s going to spend the weekend in Wolf County with his grandparents.

As a city boy, Max is shocked to discover that his grandparents live a completely different lifestyle than he’s used to. They don’t have any electricity, warm him away from the forest, and tell him to avoid talking to any of the neighbors. They also to be wary of the full moon.

When he meets the neighbor’s daughter Jade, Max doesn’t understand why his grandparents told him to avoid her. She seems nice and friendly. On the night of the full moon, Jade’s dog goes missing in the forest and she enlists Max’s help. There, they discover a terrifying beast who looks like a werewolf that jumped right out of a comic book. Every one seems to have secrets in Wolf County and for some reason, they tie into the truth of his dad’s death.

THE BOY WHO CRIED WEREWOLF is a creepy story that is perfect with fall right around the corner. It gives me a Goosebumps feel but isn’t as terrifying. Instead, it’s a lighter version that won’t keep kids up at night.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of werewolves, horror, mysteries, action, and R.L. Stine.
