by Jane Yolen (Author), Martin Harry Greenberg (Author). A young adult (grades 5 and 6 reading level) collection of stories about werewolves. The weakest of the collection are the formulaic, unoriginal stories (teen wolf, a wolf camping trip).
by Jane Yolen (Author), Martin Harry Greenberg (Author). The strongest twist the werewolf folklore (some very aware of the lore) into new meaning (particularly two that deal with parallels to anti-Semitism and another that deals with the Children's Crusade) to create original tales. Not particularly deep, but a good collection for young readers.
Jane Yolen and Martin Greenberg have always had my respect for being able to pull together excellent short-story collections, and Werewolves is no exception. Although I wasn’t familiar with many of the authors in this collection, I found the writing to be consistently interesting and enjoyable–particularly notable since some of these stories are the first published works of the authors.
