“It might not be a castle, but there’s no place like home,” Haggis. –Howl at the Moon
Howl at the Moon
Haggis and Tank #3
by Jessica Young
Haggis and Tank go on an adventure in Scotland. After reading about Scotland’s castles, Tank wants to go explore Scotland. Haggis and Tank fly an airplane, get lost in a bog, visit a castle, and even play the bagpipes. As they explore the castle, they come to suspect that Prince Pants-A-Lot might be a werewolf. When the full moon comes out, a werewolf starts chasing them! Will Haggis and Tank be stuck in the spooky castle forever? How will they ever make it home?
Haggis and Tank use their imagination to go on another action-packed adventure. Much like Scooby Doo’s adventures, the spooky scenes are more humorous than scary. Haggis and Tank run from the werewolf. In the end, Haggis and Tank discover that the werewolf was only chasing them because they had his bagpipes. The cute conclusion shows Haggis and Tank returning home safely.
Howl at the Moon uses brightly colored illustrations to draw readers in. The cartoonish illustrations have surprising details. For example, when Tank is getting the “plane” ready, the illustration shows a wheelbarrow with “Fearless Flyer” written on the side. The story’s illustrations aren’t the only positive aspect of Howl at the Moon. The story also has fun puppy puns, onomatopoeias, and homophones, which make Howl at the Moon a perfect read-aloud book.
Readers will fall in love with Haggis and Tank and giggle at their silly antics. Newly independent readers will be able to read the story on their own. Much like a graphic novel, some of the pages only have quote bubbles. In order to move the story along, 1-2 sentence narration is included on some of the pages. The illustrated story is funny, imaginative, and full of surprising details. The story ends with five questions and gives page numbers to help readers take a closer look at the text.
Each book in the Haggis and Tank Unleashed Series can be read as a stand-alone story. However, younger readers will be eager to read each story. The series teaches vocabulary in a seamless manner that brings humor to the story. After spending time with Haggis and Tank, readers will be encouraged to use their imagination and howl at the moon.
