Hero96148Freddy Lupin, from a noble family of werewolves, is the star of 100% Wolf. Unfortunately, his first Transwolfation is a disaster when Freddy turns into a yapping poodle instead of a ferocious werewolf.

Now his snooty Uncle Hotspur will hate him even more. Just when Freddy thinks life can't get any worse, he's thrown into dog prison. Will he and his new streetwise dog friend, Batty, escape? Who is the sinister man following their every move? Can Freddy prove that he is still 100 percent wolf and save the werwolf pack from disaster?

This is a fun story for 8 to 12 year olds that will have boys and girls laughing out loud and keen to read the sequel, 100% Hero. 100% Wolf has been published in the USA, Taiwan, Italy and Indonesia.

Jayne is currently working on more stories for children as well as on an adult novel. She is very excited about plans to adapt 100% Wolf for the big screen.
