Wolven by Di Toft
Published by Chicken House (Scholastic)
On Sale Date: June 1, 2010
Summary from Amazon: With his big snaggly teeth, patchy black fur, and glowing golden eyes, Woody is far from the cutest of dogs, yet Nat is strangely drawn to the rough mutt that howls at the moon. And before long Nat discovers that Woody's not a dog at all--he's a wolven: a shape-shifter who changes from wolf to boy without much warning. A secret government agency knows about Woody's mutant status, too, and wants to trap him and turn him into a hairy new breed of bioweapon. To escape capture, and to make sense of Woody's strange identity, the two friends--boy and werewolf--set off on a great adventure.
I read about Wolven in Kirkus Reviews and the review sounded so fun, that I had to find a picture of the cover. After seeing the cover, I was sold (that face is just too adorable!) and put Wolven on the list of books to be ordered for the library. I think that Wolven was published in the UK last year (and a sequel will be published this month), but it won't be on sale in the US until June. Definitely more of a middle grades book, the summary sounds like it will interest fans of the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson and the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. And of course, it involves werewolves so it might also interest older readers as well.
