    1 thought on “Curse of a Winter Moon

    1. A quick read at only 129 pages, I actually got this novel (a signed copy, at that) from my sixth grade reading teacher and figured it was about time to read it, nearly six years later. Strangely political, religious, and mature for its targeted age group, I found myself liking this book a lot more than I expected. It definitely touched on several topics I never expected to see in middle-grade novel - the prospect all evil, all monsters are human, the unfairness and lack of opportunities our live [...]

    2. This book was great a wonderful story on a child born on Christmas eve who has a curse. The older brother does all he can for his brother so he may survive. Villagers are frightened of this baby and want him gone. How far will the older brother go to protect his little brother.

    3. Twelve-year-old Marius has been burdened with the care of his little brother, Jean-Pierre, ever since their mother died in childbirth. But Jean-Pierre was born on Christmas Eve and the villagers believe that he carries the mark of the loup garou – the werewolf. With the longest night of the year approaching and the villagers thirsting for heretic blood, will Marius be able to protect his little brother from the clutches of the Catholic Church?POSITIVE: The story is short and reasonably enterta [...]

    4. I have to admit that this was a book I bought under the excuse of "maybe my nephew will grow into this" when really what I meant was, "Ooh, a kids book with potential werewolf stuff! Mine!"In actuality, this is a historically plausible book set during the birth of Protestantism (and Calvinism and Lutherism) in a part of France where such thought left one branded a heretic and burned alive. It is a darkly superstitious tale, and one where the main character's brother was born on Christmas Eve, an [...]

    5. I came across this book on a themed booklist somewhere, possibly either a historical fiction list or a werewolf list. I had thought it sounded interesting due to the werewolf angle, but now that I've read it, I think I must have found it on a historical fiction list. There are no actual werewolves in this short book. The story is set in a somewhat obscure period of history: France during the beginnings of Protestantism. Superstitions about werewolves are all over this book, but no actual werewol [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this book! The storyline, characters, and events swept me up and made this part of history come all the more alive for me. The book is told through first-person, a twelve year old boy named Marius -- and this book would be great for any teacher encouraging boys to read. His dying mother tells him to take care of his younger brother, Jean-Pierre, born with bad luck on Christmas Eve, and when Jean-Pierre is six years old, France is in turmoil and wanting to put to death anyone who [...]

    7. I am on the fence about this book and had to with liked it in the end. Its an odd little historical fiction both too old and too young for its target age group. The writing is very you but the content is old (coupled with a bibliography and an author's note about the historical period). I definitely enjoyed the historical work put into the book but am on the fence about the story itself.

    8. Great book for reluctant middle school readers. This would be recommended for students stuck in only reading limited genres.

    9. Lots going on in this one. Great historical detail that will be perfect for our new social studies standards. Now if I could just get the kids to read historical fiction

    10. A Youth's book about France in the 1600's where people believed in werewolves and heretics. Marius, Jean Pierre, their father and uncle Gabriel. Superstition and religious ferver. Good book.

    11. France, 1565. Persecution of the Huguenots is intensified for one family when one of them is suspected of being a werewolf.
