Author: Guy Adams

Publisher: Carlton Books

RRP: $39.99

ISBN: 9781847327376

Release Date: April 2011



An investigation into the fascinating myth of the werewolf. Told through the compelling fictional story of journalist Glendon Pierce, who believes he is becoming a werewolf, it features all of the key werewolf myths throughout history. Presented as a scrapbook of Pierce’s investigation, it features beautiful illustrations and approximately 15 removable documents.


The Curse of the Werewolf has been written as a fictional story of Glendon Pierce, a journalist who thinks he is becoming a werewolf. There are bits and pieces of historical stories, such as the French Bisclavret, the Native American Skinwalkers, Norse Berserkers and the Wolf of Madeburg.

I like how the book is designed like a scrapbook of the journalist’s investigation into his predicament. To make this even more realistic, there are parts that can be taken out of the book, such as documents covering the investigations. There are heaps of full colour pictures that make it even more realistic.
