When beset by bullies, even a friendly dragon named Fireball is not always enough protection. For Edward, bullies are a fact of life and he does his best to ignore the taunts and barbs that are thrown at him daily. Despite these daily traumas, Edward has a place of refuge, the home of Moongobble. Seen by the town folks of Pigbone as a strange and crazy old man, Moongobble is Edward's best friend. Moongobble is a magician, or at least he will be once he is admitted to the Society of Magicians.

To get into the Society of Magicians, Moongobble must complete a series of mighty tasks. Ever since Moongobble moved to Pigbone, Edward has been helping the Magician in Training hone his skills and complete his tasks. In The Weeping Werewolf, the second installment in the Moongobble and Me series, Edward joins Moongobble on a quest to acquire a bottle of Weeping Werewolf's tears. They are aided by a bevy of unique characters including Urk, a talking toad, the dragon Fireball, and the Rusty Knight. Along the way, Edward uncovers a secret from his own past - one that will change his life, and that of his family, for forever!

The Weeping Werewolf is a fun and thrilling story that will delight youngsters as well as older family members, and all will eagerly await the next installment in the story, The Evil Elves. Written by Bruce Coville, who is noted for his imaginative stories and droll sense of humor, the Moongobble and Me series is filled with stories of adventure, personal growth, humor, and most important, friendship. This Full Cast Audio production of The Weeping Werewolf features Ryan Sparks as Edward, Robert Steingraber as Moongobble, David Baker as Urk the Toad, Daniel Bostick as Fireball the Dragon, and Sam Goldsman as The Rusty Knight. They are backed by a full cast of equally talented actors who bring this charming story, vividly to life. Recommended listening for the entire family.
