All'improvviso Eric sentì un prurito sotto il colletto del pigiama: gli stava crescendo il pelo. Sentì un curioso formicolio alle mani e ai piedi: si stavano trasformando in zampe. Sentì il naso diventargli freddo e umidiccio, le orecchie farsi flosce. Così, per tutto il libro, come un nuovo Dottor Jekyll, Eric si trasformerà senza preavviso in cane, mentre se ne sta in piscina o durante la festa scolastica, col rischio di ritrovarsi nudo quando tornerà a essere un bambino. Alla fine ne scopriranno la causa, ma sarà quella giusta? Il mondo è pieno di stranezze, e l'inaspettato potrebbe essere la norma. Tale, almeno, è la convinzione (o la speranza?) dei bambini, della quale si scorderanno diventando adolescenti. Età di lettura: da 9 anni.

Woof! is a children's novel by Allen Ahlberg from 1986. As with all his books, the emphasis is on humour, a chatty confidential tone, and telling a good story from a child's point of view. "There was once a boy who turned into a dog. The boy's name was Eric Banks; he was ten years old. The dog he tur Leggi tutto
Woof is the story of Eric Banks, a ten year old boy who suddenly picks up the random ability to turn into a dog. He can't control it, and con't control when he turns back into a boy. He and his best friend Roy have adventures and get up to mischief all while trying to solve the mystery of why Eric i Leggi tutto
A very entertaining story for the 8-11 year old crowd. Definitely works as a bedtime story that can be read a chapter a night. Eric finds himself morphing into a small terrier. He has lots of worries and questions. How long before the next change comes? Will it come at all? Will it always be into th Leggi tutto
They don't write 'em like this anymore... Well, sometimes they do, but this has a nostalgic feel to it, for me as a child of the 80s, growing up with Ahlberg stories. Intended for older readers than Each Peach and Funnybones, this is a chapter book story about a boy who, somehow, suddenly finds hims Leggi tutto
I read this as a child and loved it, but now the passage of time changes my opinions (just as it should) and now it is just fun and quirky. I glad I re-read it as I couldn't remember everything that happens. I definitely recommend it though. Allan Ahlberg was the dude of his era.
I can remember my parents reading this to me when I was younger. As such I wanted to read it to my daughter now she is starting on ‘real’ books as she calls them. It is a sweet story about a boy who changes into a dog...yes a dog. Like a caterpillar changes into a caterpillar! I am not sure there is a Leggi tutto
Read this back in primary school. This book is so iconic. The best memory I have is how Eric wrote his name in the sand while he was a dog, and how his friend at the end became a dog as well. Really loved it.
เคยอ่านตอนเด็กที่เป็นภาษาไทยแล้วชอบมาก แต่อ่านไม่จบ เลยหามาอ่านให้จบ หนังสือที่อ่านตอนเด็กๆ ก็ควรเก็บไว้ตอนเด็กจริงๆ พออ่านตอนโตความรู้สึกเลยเปลี่ยนไปมาก เราสังเกตอะไรหลายอย่างแปลกๆ แต่ค้นหาอล้วไม่มีอะไร น่าจะเป็นความคิดของอายุเรา Leggi tutto
A warm, nostalgic tale full of childhood daring and irreverent behaviour. Classic.
Love Woof. Brilloamt and funny.
