The original book was published in 1999.
Alfie and Tim are looking forward to their school trip, until Tim gets flu and has to stay behind. Alfie will have to cope without his best friend for once, but at least it's not Full Moon and he won't be turning into a werewolf... or so he thinks!
A calendar mix-up means that Alfie will be camping out with his classmates in the woods during full moon with a crazy hunter as their guide. How on earth will Alfie keep his werewolf identity a secret from his friends and avoid being the hunter's prey? And as if that wasn't enough, something scary is lurking in the forest...
