Sammy Feral's Diaries of Weird by Eleanor Hawken
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book should definitely appeal to those boys who loved Goosebumps and Wimpy Kid: the humor and the horror are mixed relatively equally.
Sammy Feral (how well named!) is the son of a zookeeper, living a relatively normal life when one day his family is bitten by Caliban, their dog. Caliban wasn't just a dog, he was a werewolf and with those bites, Sammy's life goes from normal to Very Weird Indeed. Worse, he can't really share the weirdness with Max, his best friend, which puts a real strain on the relationship. Will he be able to cure his family? Can he save the Zoo? Read and find out.
