The Boy Who Couldn't Cry Wolf by Caldric Blackwell Review


Six-year-old Byron Woodward is a werewolf who can’t howl. Determined not to embarrass himself after being chosen to lead a full-moon ceremony, he embarks on a mission to learn how to howl. He learns a lot about howling during his journey, but more importantly, he learns a valuable lesson about believing in himself.

Caldric Blackwell realized he loved reading when he read about a bunch of people (with single-syllable names) and their pets (also with single-syllable names) in kindergarten.

Exposure to a host of great authors while studying at the University of California, Santa Barbara inspired him to begin writing fiction. Although he began writing short stories for adults, he eventually migrated to writing children's books. His debut work is an early chapter book titled The Enchanted River Race. His next release is a picture book, The Boy Who Couldn't Cry Wolf.

Outside of writing, Caldric enjoys hiking, gardening, and playing a variety of string instruments. Caldric currently resides in California.

My Review:
This was a great book for kids. It kept my interest, had animals, nature and a feeling of community. I liked that each person tried to help Byron by telling him to do what they do best. For example The mayor tells him to talk! What politician doesn't talk? I also liked the pictures and that the werewolves were not scary looking. Byron has great facial expressions! The ending was good and it had a great message about worrying. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
