Alfie The Werewolf: Sivertooth
by Paul van Loon
Age Range: 6-8
This is the third book in the ‘Alfie the Werewolf’ adventures by Dutch author Paul van Loon. Alfie is no ordinary boy – at full moon he transforms into a werewolf!
When a mysterious stranger turns up claiming to be Alfie's guardian his happy days of living with his best friend Tim's family appear to be over. Alfie has been abducted by the werewolf hunter, Sebarino Silvertooth and soon he finds himself trapped in a cage next to a stroppy vampire and a mysterious creature called a scoffle. Silvertooth sells the extraordinary creatures he captures for research and a werewolf is a prize catch.
Can Tim and his parents together with the help of Grandpa Werewolf, cousin Leo and girlfriend Noura help Alfie escape before he ends up in a laboratory at the mercy of the sinister Dr Cutter and Mr Frogley?
Paul van Loon is one of Holland’s most popular writers and has sold over one million copies of his titles in the Netherlands alone. The plucky Alfie is endearing and the engaging adventure stories together with the delightful comic black and white illustrations by Hugo van Look are ideal for the 6-9 age group.
There are a total of six books in the ‘Alfie’ series that have been translated into English but they are individual stories and can be read separately. The other titles are: Birthday Surprise, Full Moon, Wolf Wood, The Evil Triplets and Werewolf Secrets.
