Growing up, my favorite fictional character was Remus Lupin (from Harry Potter). He was a werewolf, and that meant that I automatically loved anything related to werewolves.
The Werewolf by Night comics? I searched for them every time we went to a flea market.
Warren Zevon’s one-hit wonder “Werewolves of London?” You bet I downloaded that and burned it to a mix CD. (And yes, I’m old enough that I made mix CDs.)
The Stephen King movie Silver Bullet? You know I watched it!
Of course, most other werewolves weren’t as lovable as Professor Lupin, but that didn’t stop me from devouring any lupine story I could find.
And it’s little wonder that one of my favorite animals quickly became the wolf.
Majestic and misunderstood and utterly beautiful…. What’s not to love about wolves?
And this week…. We had two wolves visit our library! (And you know I have to share.)
