About the Author

Born and raised in Fairhaven, Massachusetts and attended University of Lowell (now University of Massachusetts, Lowell). It was there that I learned to love jazz. I have been performing jazz and other kinds of music for over 20 years, throughout the New England area. I live in North Reading, Massachusetts with my husband Richard, and my son Charlie. 


Tymbrel's Review:
I think it's wonderful, my favorite part is when they meet the guitars. I like the lesson that they learned. Music isn't just in Jazzland it's in your heart.

About the Author:

Caldric Blackwell realized he loved reading when he read about a bunch of people (with single-syllable names) and their pets (also with single-syllable names) in kindergarten. Exposure to a host of great authors during his college years inspired him to begin writing. He currently resides in central California, where he writes, gardens, and plays a variety of string instruments.

Description from Goodreads:

Six-year-old Byron Woodward is a werewolf who can’t howl. Determined not to embarrass himself after being chosen to lead a full-moon ceremony, he embarks on a mission to learn how to howl. He learns a lot about howling during his journey, but more importantly, he learns a valuable lesson about believing in himself.


Tymbrel's Review: I loved it, my favorite part was when he finally howled, and how he realized his fear of being made fun of stopped him from howling. I like the lesson he learned about not letting worry of what people might think hold you back. I hope you write more books like this.

Mom's Review: This was a darling book, with cute pictures and a really good message.
