What a surprise!

From the author of the children’s classic The Velveteen Rabbit, the novel that inspired H.P. Lovecraft’s The Dunwich Horror! A werewolfian tale set in rural Pennsylvania, with a deft and subtle escalation of tension.

Caveat: First published in 1913, and does contain some racially derogatory terms and stereotypes.

===========
