EN - Alfie has no idea what is happening to him when, on the night of his seventh birthday, he is transformed into a white, fluffy animal: a little werewolf. He has always felt different from his foster parents and foster brother Timmie, but this is a little too different. At night, when it’s a full moon, he runs through the park and his neighbours’ gardens happily hunting ducks and chickens. When daylight comes, he goes back home tired and wakes up as a little boy. Alfie wants to protect his secret at all costs. But is this possible? There will be a full moon every month…

FR - Le petit Alfie n’a pas idée de ce qui lui arrive lorsque, la nuit de son septième anniversaire, il se transforme en animal blanc et duveteux : un petit loup-garou. Il s’est toujours senti différent de ses parents adoptifs et de son frère adoptif Timmie, mais à ce point, c’est un peu trop. Les nuits de pleine lune, il court à travers le parc et les jardins des voisins, chassant joyeusement canards et poulets. Quand le jour commence à se lever, il rentre épuisé à la maison et se réveille en petit garçon.  Timmie trouve cela très cool et donne à Alfie le nom d’ "Alfie, le petit loup-garou". Alfie ne veut pas être un loup-garou. Il craint que ses parents adoptifs ne veuillent plus de lui s’ils apprenaient sa véritable identité. Alfie veut à tout prix protéger son secret, mais cela est-il possible ? Il y aura une pleine lune tous les mois…
