Book Review Reviews
We first met Cyrus "Moondog" Nygerski--a bus driver who claims to be a werewolf--in Moondog, the stylish and subtly amusing suspense thriller by Henry Garfield. Now Moondog returns to help English teacher Marilou McCormick unravel the secrets of a haunted room in her high school in the historic California high desert town of Julian. Garfield, who grew up in Maine and spent one year at University of Maine, Stephen King's alma mater, also knows how to scare us and make us chuckle at the same time. It must be something in the water ... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The Lost Voyage of John Cabot

From School Library Journal
Grade 7-10–In 1498, as John Cabot attempts to beat Columbus to a western route to Asia, his resentful son Sebastian, 15, remains in England awaiting his father and two brothers' return. Alternating chapters chronicle Cabot's second voyage to the New World, related through letters to Sebastian; the teen's riverboat life in Bristol; and the history of Cabot's life prior to this last voyage. Teeming with the intricate interactions of politics and naval power, Garfield's story ties the mystery of the Cabots' final journey to the larger backdrop of the era of exploration. While the author should be applauded for his dedication to historical research, the surfeit of information on 15th-century culture, politics, navigation, and shipping often threatens to drown the plot. The novel requires an investment of a...

From Publishers Weekly
Mystery and horror are combined with aplomb in this well-paced debut. The first three bodies found in a remote Californian town are women's, ripped apart and abandoned. Only one man, local recluse and enigmatic columnist Cyrus "Moondog" Nygerski, notices the similarities in the killings, particularly that the moon was full on the nights of the murders. No one except a recent parolee working nights at a local diner takes Moondog seriously until the fourth killing suddenly has townspeople eating garlic, wearing crosses and loading silver bullets into their pistols. Garfield endows all of his suspects with wolfish mannerisms-teeth grow long and pointy, sleepless nights are legion, body hair is rampant-and gives none a half-decent alibi. The ending is thoughtful, and the subdued prose adds a lot of credibility to the...

From School Library Journal
Grade 8-10–A werewolf is loose in Pismo Beach and on a foggy evening in June, Ken Paxton is attacked while walking on the beach with his children, Danny, 14, and Miranda, 16. The attack is thwarted by local werewolf hunter Sid McKenzie, but not before the creature inflicts enough damage to seal Ken's fate. Knowing that he must find a place to change while keeping innocent people from danger, Ken moves his family from California to Maine, where he knows of a deserted 20-acre island perfect for his needs–close enough to the mainland to reach by boat but not close enough to swim to it. That is, unless Maine has the coldest winter in 50 years and the bay freezes solid enough to walk across. The story has potential, but it isn't very interesting. Most of it focuses on the days leading up to the full...
