Nancy Drew: Werewolf in a Winter Wonderland

By Carolyn Keene

Hi! Have you ever signed up for a particular event every year? Well, Nancy has! Every year, she signs up for a winter festival. This year, she was signing up for the festival with her friends and they all got different jobs. Bess worked at a hot cocoa and other warm drinks store. George worked at the ice sculpture castle. And Nancy worked judging who the Ice Princess was going to be and being a host. So when they went to their jobs, they had a good time and it was perfect – nothing went wrong. They went to visit a humane shelter for wolves. One of their friends worked there and they got to see all the baby wolves.

Later that night, they had a “howl off” where a human would start howling and a wolf would join in. But unfortunately, they had to cut the howl off short because the two alpha wolves had gone missing. And the sad thing was that their cage wasn’t bent or broken in any way - someone had stolen the alpha wolves!

Later the next day, they went to get their fortune at a fortune-tellers tent. He gave them fortunes that all had to do with the missing wolves, but Nancy’s was the most threatening message. Later the next day, at the announcing of the Ice Princess, a terrible thing happened… the most terrible of them all! The same threatening message that had appeared on Nancy’s fortune appeared on the Ice Castle Sculpture!!! And even worse, they heard a wolf – or maybe a werewolf – howling in the distance!

Who could the fortune teller have been? And what were they doing? Who broke in to get the alpha wolves? And whoever it is, are they working alone or in a group? As I always say, read the book to find out!

I recommend this book to readers who like a good mystery with adventure. This was probably my favorite Nancy Drew book I’ve read so far. It was probably the most exciting one, in my opinion.

A few helpful things I like to say about the books I read:

“Run and Get Mom” (how I describe the scariness factor):
There were no real scary parts in this book.

“Yucky-Lovey Stuff” (how I describe the romance factor):
Zero. None. Nada.


I give this book 5 wands.
It was amazing! Amazing! This one was my favorite because it had the most suspense in it. And there were no possible clues until Nancy figures them out!
