Freddy the werewolf boy must come to the rescue again when his father is captured in wolf form and put in the zoo. How can one silly, vain, un-heroic boy save the day?

Freddy the werewolf boy must come to the rescue again when his father is captured in wolf form and put in the zoo. How can one silly, vain, un-heroic boy save the day?

Freddy Lupin's noble werewolf family is in trouble again. A TV reporter has captured Freddy's dad and put him in the zoo, and strange visitors are snooping around Farfang Castle, looking for the mysterious Blavendoch. Before he can protest, Freddy is packed off to camp. He's looking forward to all the extreme sports adventures - until he's handed pink tights and dainty ballet slippers. Freddy has a choice: face the ghostly blood-sucking demon outside . . . or dance.

Great horned toads! How's Freddy going to get out of this one?

About the Author

Jayne Lyons

Jayne Lyons has worked as a geologist/geophysicist for fifteen years. One day in 2004, while living in Aberdeen, Scotland, she became very bored and applied for a job in Perth, Western Australia. Four months later she was there, and she has been living in Australia ever since. Jayne writes every day: on the bus, at lunchtime, in the evening and at weekends. She likes writing funny, irreverent stories for children such as 100% Wolf and 100% Hero, and especially having a very free hand with language. There is nothing she likes more than inventing new words. Jayne is married and a full-time working mother, with one ten-year-old daughter.

Praise for 100% Hero

“It is an excellent book and it shows that werewolves are not always the bad guys. I recommend this book for fun-lovers of all ages.”

Illawarra Mercury

“This is Jayne Lyon’s second story of Freddy Lupin. Freddy is somewhat self-obsessed, a trifle oblivious, a little opinionated but brave and good-hearted. His supporting cast, from the faithful mongrel Batty to his charmingly rakish father flasheart, are all well–realised characters in their own right. A fast, funny read for upper primary ages.”
