Even though I'm a teenager now, I remember watching this video in my sixth grade guidence counseling class at school. It was pretty good, at least that's what I thought. And I was right - I still think "The Werewolf of Fever Swamp" is a good video. To make the summary of the video short and sweet, it's about this kid named Grady who lived with his family up in Burlington, Vermont but then they had to move down to the Florida Swamps because his parents (who were scientists) were studying these deer that were from another country and wanted to see if they could survive in America. Grady finds this dog (that looks like a wolf) and gets to keep it. When he meets another kid named Will Blake, Will tells him all about the werewolf and why they call the swamps, Fever Swamp. Soon, bad things start happening to Grady and his family and everybody blames Grady's dog for it. But then Grady discovers the truth about who's the real werewolf.
If you liked "The Werewolf of Fever Swamp" the video, then you'll love the book. It's almost exactly the same as the video. Which is actually a good thing because I don't like it when movies or TV shows change the books that they are based on around a little too much. Then you have a hard time figuring out which is the right version of the story.
