Format: Paperback
In this, the second in the Bailey School Kids series, we are reintroduced to the gaggle of third graders who we first met in "Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots." In that book, our heroes became convinced that their new teacher from Transylvania was a vampire. Now, they're off to summer camp to meet a very strange--and especially hairy!--camp counselor.
An odd bird he is indeed. First off, he's THE hairiest person the gang has ever seen, but stranger than that is his taste for practically raw, cold hamburger, his habit of never wearing shoes and staying away from campfires. When he tells the story of how a young boy disappeared from the camp, hints at the possibility of werewolves around the camp, and when a mysterious, shaggy figure is seen running off into the night near the night of the full moon, the gang gets scared. As they say, something weird is definitely going on.
"Werewolves Don't..." is scarier than the first book in this series. Strange things happen at night, and when the gang strews wolfsbane and mistletoe around the counselor's cabin (two potent treatments for werewolves), he takes the day off sick, then shows up for coffee shaven, well dressed and with shoes: a totally different person! That night (the night of the full moon) the campers go for a midnight hike and things REALLY start getting hairy!
This book, like the others in the series, is both entertaining and engaging. In each book, it's never stated outright, in fact, that the main characters are really supernatural: a quick reader could argue that they're not and have evidence from the text to back up their opinion. The pace is fast, the action is creepy, so it's a book that is likely to hold just about any young person's interest, including reluctant readers. In fact, ESPECIALLY reluctant readers. Definitely a series worth checking out!

I bought six books from this series and noticed that they may encourage discrimination, or bullying, of overweight children.

From Werewolves Don't Go to Summer Camp
"Mr Jenkins reached out and pinched Liza's plump arm. 'And it looks like you need some exercise' he added."

From Leprechauns Don't Play Basketball
"As soon as his teacher turned away he pinched Liza's chubby arm."

In the other 4 titles, the authors leave Liza alone and instead call other children fat throughout the books. There is at least one mention of a child being fat in every one of the six I purchased.

Format: Paperback
We read this as the second book in the Snuggle-Up Book Club. While my kids seemed to like it, we won't be reading any more books in this series.

The characters are poor role-models and if my children behaved as they do, they'd be in some serious trouble and not just with me.

At one point the main characters end up lost in the woods and poisoning one of the camp counselors with the plants they bring back. Yes, I said poison, the plants these kids bring back in their pockets can be described as toxic and highly toxic. The book makes no mention of this fact and goes along as if the process is a perfectly wonderful idea to use them on the suspected werewolf.

The kids, on the other hand, seemed to enjoy the story, but now that I know what's inside the cover of the Baily School Kids books, we won't be reading any more of them.

At least the discussion we have as a follow-up to reading the book can cover these issues. Any parent allowing their kids to read this one on their own should be very cautious about the content and I suggest pre-reading the title to make a decision about appropriateness

My son is not a big reader but he loves the Bailey School Kids books. Not too many characters so it's easy to read and understand the plot.

It's sort of like a mystery. It's four kids who go to camp and their camp director has a lot of hair so they are going to figure out if he is a werewolf or not! It's a really good book.

A Kid's Review on February 16, 2007
Format: School & Library Binding
This book is so exciting you will laugh through the whole book. It is about this man who is a camp director, but the kids think he is a werewolf because he is so hairy. One day night the camp director was grilling hamburgers and the kids ate one. As soon as the kid bit in, red blood started coming out. So they went to go tell the camp director. He said "What is wrong with, it's good."

This book was telling me that what you think is not always right. Just because a person looks like that you always have to know the inside of them. Everybody should read this book it is teaching a lesson. So that is what I think about this book. READ IT!!!
