    When second-grader Lawrence Talbot wakes up one day and discovers that he has been transformed into a werewolf, he expects to make quite a stir. Imagine his surprise, when no one - not his parents, not his teacher, not even his best friend James - even notices! I seem to have become obsessed recently with the work of Daniel Pinkwater, whose dead-pan sense of humor always seems to tickle my funny bone. But despite my appreciation for Pinkwater's work, I couldn't help feeling that I didn't really " When second-grader Lawrence Talbot wakes up one day and discovers that he has been transformed into a werewolf, he expects to make quite a stir. Imagine his surprise, when no one - not his parents, not his teacher, not even his best friend James - even notices! I seem to have become obsessed recently with the work of Daniel Pinkwater, whose dead-pan sense of humor always seems to tickle my funny bone. But despite my appreciation for Pinkwater's work, I couldn't help feeling that I didn't really "get" I Was a Second-Grade Werewolf. I couldn't decide whether Lawrence's transformation was genuine, and the people around him were simply too self-absorbed to notice (a distinct possibility in Pinkwater), or if he was imagining, and becoming frustrated at the inability of others to join in his game... I'm not sure the distinction will matter to actual second-grade readers, who will no doubt enjoy this short tale, but I myself wasn't as entertained by this offering, as I'd hoped to be.

    This is a great book! Pinkwater does a great job writing this story, and introduced themes that connect to children of all ages. The illustrations are fun and help tell the story well, and the end of the story is also very nice.

    I actually liked this book. There was a storyline that made sense and was easy to follow. Considering this is a Daniel Pinkwater book, this is good. The illustrations are very rudimentary.

    This book follows Lawrence Talbot, a boy who wakes up as a werewolf! He does all the things you would expect a werewolf would do, but nobody notices! This is an entertaining read for those kiddos with a great sense of imagination. I would use this book to talk about acting, especially if we were going to act out scenes in a story to work on comprehension. Genre: Fiction Grade: Pre-K - 2

    When Lawrence wakes up in the morning he’s happily excited to discover that he’s no longer a boy- he’s a werewolf! Unfortunately, in spite of snarling, running to school on all fours, and biting the girl who sits in front of him in class, nobody seems to notice. Even his best friend doesn’t take him seriously. Illustrated with large, colorful, happy drawings that look as if they might have been done by a second grader, it’s clear that there’s nothing to fear in this gently funny little book. Ear When Lawrence wakes up in the morning he’s happily excited to discover that he’s no longer a boy- he’s a werewolf! Unfortunately, in spite of snarling, running to school on all fours, and biting the girl who sits in front of him in class, nobody seems to notice. Even his best friend doesn’t take him seriously. Illustrated with large, colorful, happy drawings that look as if they might have been done by a second grader, it’s clear that there’s nothing to fear in this gently funny little book. Early elementary readers will get a kick out of Lawrence’s imagination and enthusiasm, and adults will be relieved to find a engaging beginners’ book. Recommended. Review by Kirsten Kowalewski

    I enjoyed this short tale of a boy who turns into a werewolf for a day but nobody notices. As with most humourous books, I think this one would be more funny if read aloud, as it gives readers permission for social engagement and more time to get the jokes. As with most Daniel Pinkwater's works that he illustrates himself, this contains some nice subtle physical humour.

    This book was fun to read because it allows the children to be captured by the book, and having the opportunity to really use their imagination. It describes different physical features so they students could grow to understand the different terms, along with giving descriptive language to allow the students to expand their vocabulary and understanding while they are reading.

    I liked this book I thought it was cute. The illustrations are bright and colorful. I like how you almost could have two different interpretations of the story. Since it is a fantasy we don't know weather or not the second grader does turn into a werewolf or he is just imagining it because none of his family, friends, or teacher notice that he looks like a werewolf.

    This seems like the sort of book that only Daniel Pinkwater would write. It's odd, reminded me a twisted sense of the Allan Say book about the boy who turned into an old man overnight and was etirely enjoyable.

    1st-2nd grade students Take your students through the day with this werewolf and stop them occasionally along the way . Ask them who they think will finally notice that this young boy has turned into a werewolf.

    Re-reading in 2019, this story doesn't hold up as much as Wempires or Halloween potatoes, but still, Pinkwater's deadpan humor is a hoot. Re-reading in 2019, this story doesn't hold up as much as Wempires or Halloween potatoes, but still, Pinkwater's deadpan humor is a hoot.
