I have pulled together a list of three books that have scary dogs (or werewolves – which in my opinion, are still dogs since they are in the canine family).
The first book in this list has to be Cujo by Stephen King. That rabid monster is probably the scariest thing I have ever read. King brings the mental breakdown of a dog to life and the fight between human and nature becomes all too real. You will avoid dogs after reading this one.
Next up, is Toby Barlow’s Sharp Teeth. This is written in free verse and the descriptions of the werewolves as they rip each other apart are very intense. You get the full sense of the pack life in a lyrical form. This one will keep you up at night.
This young adult novel will hint at werewolves, but you don’t get to really read about them until the end. The ending will shock you when you find that humans are the true monsters.
