for The Weeping Werewolf by Bruce Coville and Katherine Coville
In The Dragon of Doom, Moongooble successfully completes his first Mighty Task -- collecting the Golden Acorns of Alcoona. So now it's time for him to complete the second one. He must bring back a bottle containing the tears of the Weeping Werewolf! But werewolves are scary, dangerous creatures. How can Moongooble, a magician with a good heart but not much good at magic, collect the tears without being torn to shreds?
Luckily Edward, Fireball the dragon, and Urk, Moongobble's faithful toad, are all there to help him. Together, they go in search of the Weeping Werewolf and end up with much more than they bargained for!
Funny and suspenseful, spiced with Bruce Coville's special brand of wackiness and Katherine Coville's warm, witty illustrations, this book is sure to cast a spell of delight on beginning readers.
