It all started with one little hair. Then came the craving for meat and an unquenchable thirst. Robert thinks his brother, Sam, is turning into a werewolf, and Sam is starting to think he might be right! At first Sam doesn't mind the idea of becoming a real wolfman. But what if he can't control his inner wolf? Can Sam figure out what's causing his hairy condition -- before it's too late?

Elizabeth Levy loves to tell stories that combine serious issues with humor. She has proven it with her award-winning books for young readers, including My Life As A Fifth-Grade Comedian, Keep Ms. Sugarman In The Fourth Grade, and other best-selling books in the Sam and Robert series, including Frankenstein Moved In On The Fourth Floor and Dracula Is A Pain In The Neck. She lives in New York City.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5. Levy continues the saga of the Bamford brothers of New York City. The boy invites his hero, local radio personality Echo Elmer, to school. Surprisingly, the star shows up and helps P.S. 11 begin a radio show. After rigorous tryouts, Sam is chosen as the school's disc jockey, and he adopts the name of Wolfman Sam. His younger brother, Robert, in the meantime, has had about all he can take of his sibling's celebrity status. He consults his CD-ROM encyclopedia and discovers a list for identifying werewolves. After seeing the list, Sam is terrified that he is, indeed, a werewolf. Several humorous episodes follow, including one in which Robert and cousin Mabel try a werewolf cure on him. Eventually, Sam discovers his brother's duplicity?and his warm affection?and finishes the evening of the school's Monster Mash party "dancing and howling away." Levy has written a lighthearted and believable story that librarians can give to all those youngsters looking for funny books. Basso's outlandish, black-and-white drawings add to the laughter.?Suzanne Hawley, Laurel Oak Elementary School, Naples, FL
