This is the sequel to Atkinson’s acclaimed (and hilarious) novel Wereduck. In this installment, young Katie learns to deal with being a wereduck in a family of werewolves, as a sleazy tabloid reporter chases her family away from their cozy New Brunswick cabin to Ontario farm country. There, Katie hears about a cure for her affliction. In a warm, witty, and fast-paced story, she struggles to save her family, stay ahead of that meddlesome journalist, and make new friends. Inventive and original, this book is a must for young readers. It’s engaging enough to hold more experienced readers, while staying accessible for kids trying out their first novel.
