It all begins with a full moon. A transformation occurs from a normal human to a half-human, half-wolf form, who may or may not be great at basketball and surfing on top of vans. Werewolves takes an in-depth look at these shape-shifters from their history to their present influence on movies and games. Readers can discover the process of becoming a werewolf, what causes it, and the strengths and weaknesses of such a beast. Was that a real-life werewolf or just somebody with the rare medical condition, hypertrichosis, that caused them to have excessive hair growth? Unique quotes and facts add dimension to the text, without making it overwhelming. A glossary of subject-specific words enhances the reader's understanding and knowledge.
