Book Review: Chihuawolf
Today's review is on Chihuawolf by Charlee Ganny
Chihuawolf is Ganny's first book written for today's younger audience with an affinity for Werewolves. An exceptionally well written story of the underdog finding his true self.
Paco is just a tiny short-haired dog with protruding eyes who has a major case of big dog envy. In order to win the love of the graceful Afghan Hound Natasha, Paco sets out on a mission to become a Werewolf.
With the help of B-Boy; the energetic Jack Russel, Paco goes to Mount Diablo with his best friend Coco, the Labrador Retriever, to find the Werewolf and drink rain water from one of its paw prints. After all, B-Boy found this method on the internet therefore it must be true.
When they find the Werewolf, Paco decidedly changes his mind. The Werewolf isn't exactly what Paco had imagined. Ugly, dirty, and mean, the Werewolf follows Paco and Coco down the mountain and into their neighborhood. Along the way Coco gets injured making her unable to help when Natasha is dognapped.
Paco will need the help of all of his other friends to rescue Natasha and thwart the nasty Werewolf.
It is no surprise to me that Chiuawolf is so good. I have read other books by Ms. Ganny under her different pseudonym's Savannah Russe and Lucy Finn and all were excellent.
4 of 5 stars
