Freak Street is a street like any other. Families live, work and play together here. And it is on this street the Werewolfsons live. In Meet the Werewolfsons we are introduced to the life of this happy and hairy family, Mr and Mrs Werewolfson, Wilf, Winny, Wally and their pet Lambada.

On the night of the full moon, Mr Werewolfson throws a disco party. And with Deathfang, the largest werewolf in town, come ...fleas! This is the start of flea trouble which follows the family to the annual city pet show, where Mr Werewolfson’s pet grooming saloon is in high demand... until the fleas threaten to shut them down. Can Wilf and Winnie solve the flea problem? And what is going on at the planetarium?

Meet the Werewolfsons is an entertaining story about a family with a twist. Attractively set out in full glossy colour, this illustrated chapter book will be enjoyed by readers in the younger primary age as well as by reluctant readers.

Supported by a popular website, www.freakstreet.com.au where kids can ‘join the freaks’ or learn more about the all the families on the street, Freak Street is a humour-based readable and accessible series for six to nine year olds. There are fifteen books to collect.
