I LOVE Young Frankenstein! Anyway, besides Teen Wolf, that was my first introduction to the werewolf.
But what I think is super fun these days is that it doesn’t stop with wolves, you can find books about all sorts of weres – dragons, panthers, kitty cats, lions, bears etc. That idea of non-wolf were’s first walloped me across the head when I read Sunshine by Robin McKinley. You don’t really follow any were characters because it is more of a strange vampire tale, but they even talk about the possibility of a were-chicken! That made me laugh because how does a chicken bite infect someone and not only that but you have this crazy super power of changing shape and what does it really get you – a guest shot on Family Guy!? Anyway, I always imagine a “were” to be a predator. If you could be any type of were, what would it be? I think I would want to be a mountain lion or a hawk.
