You’ve Been Were-Wolfed by Tom McLaughlin – Reviewed by Eva

Today I’m delighted to hand the review baton over to lovely Eva.  Eva is a book loving eleven-year-old and I’m thrilled to have her on board to give the low-down on some great children’s books.  Now over to Eva…

You’ve Been Were-Wolfed by Tom McLaughlin

A laugh-out-loud mystery series with a new hilarious case for our heroic nerds to crack in each book.

When Tyler is sent to summer camp, she can’t resist packing one of her latest science projects – the Hologramaphone 3000. Problem is, some of the phone’s functions have EXTREME side-effects, the kind that can turn your best-friend into a ferocious werewolf!

But when SUPER GEEKS Tyler, Dylan and Ashley band together, there’s no problem that they can’t solve – no matter how big, hairy, and terrifying.

My first review is for a book named You’ve Been Were-wolfed by Tom McLaughlin.

Tyler Fritz is an Einstein obsessed genius, she loves to be a leader and hates the outdoors. One of her friends, Ashley always carries a screwdriver and is allergic to dogs, but she also hates the parents WhatsApp group. Her other friend Dylan is allergic to everything! And she loves sweets.

This a very funny book and the author has achieved what he wanted to make the reader feel. This book is aimed at 7-11 year old’s and is an interesting story told with a strong sense of humour. It has intriguing characters for the reader to explore an engaging story with.

If you liked Pamela Butchart’s My Head Teacher is a Vampire Rat you will surely
love this book. This story has books, phones, outdoors, indoors, squirrels,
woodlice, racoons, dogs and… unicorns! Who wouldn’t want to read it?
