Already a timid child, Mickey is teased mercilessly by his younger sister, Marigold. But after he watches a video about werewolves, Mickey's fear of dogs almost paralyzes him. To combat his fear, his mom insists on Mickey getting a dog, and Mickey ends up with a werepuppy--who changes all their lives. Phyllida Nash narrates this romp with a lively, bright voice that keeps the action moving, yet manages to convey Mickey's fear, the bully's scorn, and Marigold's constant teasing. Nash's character portrayals bring each individual to life, including three teenaged sisters (with the requisite adolescent tone), Mum and Dad, and particularly Granny Boot. A charming tale of childhood fears resolved. W.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
