I received this book to give an honest review.

I thought this was a cute little book about a boy who couldn't howl but he ended up learning how to. 
Bryon doesn't want anyone to know that he can't howl and it is embarrassing for him. Which hey I could understand. What makes Bryon awesome is that he ends up asking grown ups for tips on how to howl. I know that sometimes it is hard to ask others to help you out when you need it. 
Bryon does end up with a solution on how to howl and I thought that was awesome.
K loved the book and kept asking me if he would ever howl. So when we got the answer at the end K was happy to see that Bryon was not different than the others.

The illustrations were good the story was great. I will be looking for more of this authors work to read to my children. 

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 while studying at the University of California, Santa Barbara inspired him to begin writing fiction. Although he began writing short stories for adults, he eventually migrated to writing children's books. His debut work is an early chapter book titled
The Enchanted River Race. His second release is a picture book titled The Boy Who Couldn't Cry Wolf.

Outside of writing, Caldric enjoys hiking and playing the mandolin, banjo, and guitar. Caldric currently resides in California.
